“In the spirit of National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) on February 5, and in alignment with the Girls Inc. program ‘Sporting Chance,’ Girls Inc. of Santa Fe is proud to be offering this program to the community,” says Kris Falvo, Executive Director of Girls Inc. of Santa Fe.
Ms. Falvo says, “Sporting Chance provides girls with opportunities to have fun; learn basic movement and sport skills; increase their coordination, endurance, and strength; consider the career opportunities connected to sports; and learn about successful athletes and the history of women in sports. They learn how to be both cooperative and competitive, and how to discipline their bodies and their minds.”
NGWSD is celebrated in all 50 states with community-based events, award ceremonies, and activities honoring the achievements and encouraging participation of girls and women in sports. “We’re fortunate to have the presence of the Lobos women athletes,” say Falvo who adds, “because they exemplify our mission of fostering an environment that promotes girls to be strong, smart, and bold.”
