The Centennial Tigers were recently awarded a cash grant from The Female Athlete Network (The F.A.N.) to help subsidize annual costs incurred–this is the second consecutive year The F.A.N. has awarded a grant to the Centennial Tigers.
Typically, awardees convene at an annual banquet in Fort Collins, Colorado, but due to COVID-19, The F.A.N. hosted an online awards ceremony. Of the 12 grant winners, women represented 10 different sports and cities across Colorado, including Australian rules football, rugby, softball, cycling, running, and swimming. The individual grant winners represented six sports from seven different cities in Colorado.
The spotlighted speaker of the evening was Teri “T.K.” Goldberg, a Colorado resident, mother, elementary school teacher, and former USA Softball athlete and U.S.A. Olympic alternate. She discussed her background in sports, as well as key points to becoming a versatile and successful athlete.
The F.A.N. is dedicated to creating opportunities for girls and women to participate in sports, and encouraging and supporting their lifetime appreciation of and participation in athletics by giving annual grants to individual athletes and non-profit organizations.
“Even during the midst of a 100-year global pandemic, The F.A.N. was still able to help tens of individuals and hundreds of women by proxy continue with their athletic participation,” said Tigers President Sara Rohner. “We are so thankful and grateful for the work The F.A.N. does for women in sport, and we can’t thank this organization enough for the amazing things they do for women and girls across Colorado.”
