MISSION

SG United Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to empower girls and women to be strong, confident, and resilient through sports, mentorship, and mental health programming.

 

We believe physical activity, mental skills, strong mentorship, and community give girls what they need to succeed. Each component of our curriculum and programs is intentionally designed based on this principle and guided by our motto: strong bodies, kind hearts, and unstoppable minds. Through physical activity & sports, mental health and well-being activities, and social connection, we teach our Strong Girls that they can be, and do, anything.

JUST A GIRL 5K/10K RACE 

CELEBRATING TITLE IX AND OLYMPIC DAY

Join us June 23, 2024 in Portland, Maine or from wherever you are! Open to all ages, genders, and abilities, Just A Girl Run is more than a race; it's a movement to break assumptions and foster a community that empowers girls and women. Inspired by Coach Katie Stannard and Teresa Esposito's experiences in both the athletic and professional world, where assumptions often overshadowed their leadership and expertise, this race challenges stereotypes and showcases the power of unity in sports. They decided to take action to make "just a girl" into something empowering.
