February 4th is National Girls and Women in Sports Day. It’s a day to celebrate female athletes everywhere!
The annual day was started by the Women’s Sports Foundation, an organization founded by Billie Jean King in 1974.
So here are seven reasons why scheduling a screening of TOUCH THE WALL is a great way to celebrate:
The women in TOUCH THE WALL show that they work every bit as hard as men.
Because it’s about women swimming, and we need a lot more of that.
It shows women can be close friends and fierce competitiors.
The women in the film show you how to set goals and be a winner against the odds.
Most films about sports focus on male subjects. There are very few films that show female competitors in any sports…let alone swimming.
Because the subjects represent women who are leaders and roles models.
Because if you have’t seen a film about swimming, you should, especially TOUCH THE WALL. You’ll love it!
Each year, thousands of people across the country, from coaches and athletic directors to parents and athletes, show their support for this movement. So encourage girls and women to get involved and schedule a screening of TOUCH THE WALL today.
