Three-time winter Olympian Tracy Evans was inspired by a volunteer trip she took to Africa. She experienced first hand the positive impact sport had on the impoverished youth with whom she worked. Seeing how little access these children have to sports, she returned to the United States determined to create a year-round community sports education program for kids in developing countries. Recognizing the power of sports from her own experience as an Olympic athlete, Evans wanted to start a nonprofit organization that would challenge gender norms through using sport and interactive discussion.
