February, 2018. US SOCCER 2018 SHEBELIEVES HERO AWARD. I was nominated for this award by Sophie, a local 9-year-old girl who had attended one of my Juggling for Jude soccer clinics. A panel of 7 former US Women’s National Team players narrowed down nominations to the final four. The public voted for their favorite nominee, and I earned 44% of the vote! I was so honored to have been nominated and even more excited to have been voted as SheBelieves Hero!
June, 2017. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital 2017 Jerry Nicholson Award. I accepted this award at the gala celebrating the 60th anniversary of ALSAC, the fundraising arm of St. Jude. This award was especially meaningful, as it is typically given to a St. Jude patient who raises money for the hospital. You can watch my acceptance speech HERE.
December, 2014. Sports Feel Good Stories Story of the Year. I was voted by the website followers as the recipient of this award, and when I won, I donated the $500 prize to St. Jude! Yay!
