The Women’s Sports Foundation’s GoGirlGo! Chicago is an award finalist at the Beyond Sport Global Summit 2010, taking place in Chicago, September 29-30 at the Palmer House Hilton. GoGirlGo! works across the country to improve the health of sedentary girls and to keep girls involved in physical activity. GoGirlGo! gets girls moving by supporting organizations like The Hyde Park/Kenwood AYSO 751 (American Youth Soccer Organization). AYSO 751 serves girls from diverse, economic backgrounds on the south side of Chicago. The girls, ages 4 to 18 years, are multi-ethnic and multi-lingual – a true reflection of the university community in which they play.
Founded in March 2010, the One World Futbol Project developed the One World Futbol – an ultra-durable, all-terrain ball that never deflates and plays on any surface. The company sells the One World Futbol wholesale directly to institutions and organizations, as well as to individual consumers through a “Buy One Give One” model. For every ball bought at retail, the company is committed to donating a second ball to a community in need. The One World Futbol Project is headquartered in Napa, California.
