Women's Sports Foundation wrote -I'm taking part in a Women's Sports Foundation (WSF) fundraising face off with fellow female athletes to help raise money for their Travel & Training Fund. The Fund is a grant program that supports champion female athletes – like me – by providing financial assistance to cover needs associated with the expense of travel and training. Over the last three decades, WSF have awarded thousands of grants to teams and individual athletes and we’ve supported countless Olympic medals, World Championship wins and national titles. This year, the WSF got 2x more applications than usual -- and in a perfect world, WSF would be able to fund every single qualified athlete who applied. That's where this year's Face Off campaign comes in -- athletes working to support other athletes by raising funds to help female athletes who need our help -- the aim is to fund 30+ more athletes via the 2015 Face Off.
