Hi everyone!

This summer, of 2017, I am joining a team that will travel to Tanzania, Africa, to climb the continent's tallest mountain. At the top of Mount Kilimanjaro,  a group of women, from around the globe, and I will play the highest soccer game ever played. Together, we will raise awareness of the gender inequality that permeates sports worldwide.

Sports, specifically soccer, have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember.  However, as my athletic world expanded from youth leagues to the D1 level, I came to realize the playing field is not equal. I have always felt we have a long way to go to build sports equity in the United States, but I also realize I'm more fortunate than most. I live in a nation and a culture that accepts and actively promotes women participation in sports; but this is not the case for many women around the world.

I am taking on this challenge to showcase the incredible accomplishments of my women teammates in Boston and across the globe.

In order to complete this momentous challenge, I need your help! Your donations will help alleviate the cost of not only my own flights, gear, and trekking fee; but also, I aim to support another woman on this journey who is not lucky enough to have the large, supportive community that I do. Funds will also be donated to the equal playing field campaign, supporting other young women like me. Please join me in this important initiative.

Thank you,
Jacqui
