Feb. 1 is National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Win for KC, an organization connected with the Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation, is a national leader in empowering girls and women through sports and fitness. Last year, I had the pleasure of writing a poem for WIN regarding this mission. It was published in the organization's "Live Active" curriculum booklet.
Unleash your Athlete
Girls and women, heed the call.
You are athletes, one and all.
Some may play and some may win,
But all have strength that lies within.
Determination and confidence are a must
And so is the ability to adjust.
Unleash your athlete and when you do,
You’ll find that empowerment comes from you.
