With the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada less than a month away, the U.S. Women’s National Team players are preparing to make an impression on the soccer world.
They also are determined to make an impact on their fans, especially the young girls and women who will be watching them this summer.
In an effort to give back to the young fans that support them on the field, the U.S. WNT players are sending a simple yet powerful message back: #SheBelieves.
Conceived and developed by the USWNT players, the #SheBelieves campaign is a message to young girls that they can accomplish all their goals and dreams.
“As a team, we are always excited to be able to positively impact young fans, especially young girls,” said U.S. WNT captain Christie Rampone.
“Our fans have shown us how much they believe in us, and we believe in them, too. We want everyone to have that confidence on and off the field.”
“The #SheBelieves initiative allows us to interact with the fans and encourage them to set high goals and strive to reach them no matter what the obstacles,” said Rampone.
Highlighting #SheBelieves will be “#SheBelieves in her Community,” a week-long celebration from May 19-24 where the WNT players will give back to their local communities during special events focused on young kids.
At these events, which will take place at 17 different locations across the country, players will interact with fans in locations ranging from their former high schools and clubs to local children’s hospitals, among others.
As part of the #SheBelieves initiative, the team invites fans to share on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram all the ways in which they are working to be the best at whatever they choose to do using the #SheBelieves hashtag.
Below is a list of the “#SheBelieves in her Community” events across the nation. More detailed information on each event will be provided to the specific local market in the coming days.
