BENEFITING: KID ONE TRANSPORT SYSTEM INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 04, 2012
Atlanta Phoenix is a full contact women's football team & we need your help to make it to the National Championship game in Pittsburgh, PA played at Heinz field Home of the Steelers! In our 2012 inaugural season we have defeated the competition with an 8-1 record to become the WFA National Conference Div VII Champions! The team depends almost entirely on sponsors and donations to be able to travel around the country in this nationwide league.
In order for the players, coaches & staff to go represent Atlanta in the capstone game of this growing sport for women, we must raise $20,000 to cover transportation, lodging, nourishment, & game day medical needs.
It's not just about football. Atlanta Phoenix Women's Football vision is to advance women's equality, women's personal growth and women's sports development. Through Atlanta Phoenix community activism each player is an ambassador of women's wellness; an advocate promoting resources and practices to develop self esteem, inner strength, and a positive attitude in spite of obstacles and setbacks life may have dealt. There may be better ways to do so but, sports has always been one of the best vehicles to use. Showing the world women can tackle, be tackled and get up to do it all over again takes an enormous amount of motivation, confidence and conditioning. Supporting the team getting to the ultimate center stage helps us to make one more stride towards stomping gender bias.
