Mount Vernon Women's Sports Host Sports Bra Drive
Colonials Pair with Girls Kick It! Project to Aid Women in Uganda
Feb. 26, 2013
Girls Kick It! (GKI) is a women's soccer program based in Northern Uganda that helps integrate women into sports in an effort to empower women in today's post-conflict era in the area. GKI was developed in 2006 by GW alumna Anna Phillips ('07) after witnessing the need for the empowerment of women while on a service trip for Global Youth Partnership her sophomore year. GKI has a special interest in women who have been displaced as a result of Ugandan conflict. The George Washington women's soccer team collected soccer-related items for GKI earlier this year.
Sports bras will be collected prior to and during each contest on the Mount Vernon Campus this Sunday, beginning with softball's game against Dartmouth at 10 a.m., and continuing through women's tennis' 12 p.m. match with Maryland Eastern Shore, lacrosse's bout with Bucknell at 1 p.m., and concluding with women's soccer's exhibition spring match against crosstown foe American at 3:30 p.m. Collection sites will be located at the Mount Vernon clock tower and on the patio of Ames Hall.
The Department of Athletics and Recreation is committed to serving not only the Washington community, but individuals in need around the world. GW's Mount Vernon women's sports illustrate a desire to use sport to improve the quality of life of women who may not otherwise be exposed to opportunities to learn team building and competitiveness while becoming more physically fit.
