Thank you to all of you who joined us last night for an unforgettable 7th Annual Athlete Ally Action Awards. Even virtually, we came together as a global sports community to celebrate Quinn, the Atlanta Dream and our WashU Campus Chapter for their incredible work to champion LGBTQI+ inclusion in sport, and to celebrate 10 years of Athlete Ally. We also heard from our co-chairs Ayesha Martin and Brent Miller, Athlete Ally Ambassadors Megan Rapinoe, Layshia Clarendon and Imani Dorsey, and more amazing athletes throughout the night. If you missed it, you can watch the Awards below!
This is a special year for Athlete Ally: We are celebrating our tenth anniversary.
Our goal is to set even higher aspirations for the next ten years and to do so, we want to begin with a sense of financial security. Our tenth anniversary campaign aims at a goal of $250,000 above and beyond our annual budget. We are delighted to have passed the $100,000 mark in this effort, but we just have a few months to end the year on a high note.
If you feel motivated by our crucial work, please consider adding your support to our next chapter of success.
The next 25,000 will be matched dollar for dollar by a generous funder. Please click here to donate to our tenth anniversary campaign.
