Girls Rugby is honored to have been awarded the adidas Changing Lives Through Sport grant. The purpose of the adidas grant program is to remove barriers to sport for underserved kids. This grant will allow Girls Rugby to fund a scholarship program that will provide financial support to girls within our communities who would not otherwise have the financial means to participate.
Girls Rugby remains committed to the mission of providing girls the opportunity to become the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow by delivering leadership and values-based programming. “A key objective of ours for 2020 is to make our programming more inclusive and accessible,” said Jenn Heinrich, CEO/Co-Founder of Girls Rugby, Inc. “Being awarded the adidas Changing Lives Through Sport grant supports that objective and kicks off 2020 in an incredibly meaningful way.”
adidas and Girls Rugby are aligned in the belief that through sport we have the power to change lives. “This grant from adidas is especially important to Girls Rugby because it will enable us to reach more girls and increase the impact we are able to have as we work to create an environment where girls can lead, succeed and positively influence the direction of HER life.” explained Heinrich.
Girls Rugby wants to ensure that everyone who wishes to participate in our programs will have the opportunity to do so and we are so thankful to adidas for their support in this mission.
One hundred percent of the adidas Changing Lives Through Sport grant will be allocated to the Girls Rugby scholarship fund. If you would like to support this initiative by donating to the scholarship fund, you may donate online here.
