National Girls & Women In Sports
This is an annual breakfast open to any Rome City School District female student. It is held annually to honor the many ways that sports push girls and women to achieve excellence and realize their boundless potential.
The Women’s Sports Foundation applauds the vital role played by individuals and organizations championing girls and women in sports: advocates seeking to protect Title IX and advance gender equity, athletes using their powerful platform to inspire greatness, and coaches working daily to unlock girl’s limitless capabilities.
