The Leadoff Initiative Scholarship Campaign

I've loved the game of baseball for as long as I can remember, and while I have had a lot of help and support along the way in my baseball journey, I know that a lot of other girls don't have the same opportunities as I did. My goal is to show the next generation of girls just like me who have a passion for the game that they can, truly, do anything that they put their mind to. I started the Leadoff Initiative as a fundraiser for girls who don't have access to all of the resources and equipment required to be in the game, and so I hope you'd consider donating to this important effort. We will be distributing gift cards and/or actual equipment to applicants, and you can find more information on our website, linked below: 

Thank you so much for your consideration, and the next generation of female athletes appreciate your support.
