Sometimes women do amazing things. And when I say sometimes, I mean all of the time.
Women are just flippin’ amazing, and SCA is doing something really cool to help celebrate that fact. Their Team SCA Amazing Women Everywhere mosaic is doing two things:
- Supporting their own team of women as they complete an incredible race around the world, and
- Supporting amazing women everywhere as they accomplish successes in their everyday lives
I wholeheartedly support this campaign, and I sincerely hope you’ll join in and participate (go for it – it’s free!).
Team SCA: The Race Heard Round the World
If you haven’t heard of the Volvo Ocean Race, it’s time to listen up. This is the toughest off-shore sailing race in the world – it’s considered the Mount Everest of racing. Sailing teams hit 11 ports and cover more than 39,000 nautical miles (almost two trips around the equator!) over the course of nine months. Yes – nine months. And for the first time ever, Team SCA formed an all-female racing crew consisting of 13 women. These women include three Americans, two mothers, a world record holder and a set of sisters. In other words, they’re amazing, both in the boat and out of it.
There’s only one stop in North America, and that’s going to happen in Newport, Rhode Island between May 5th and 9th, 2015, so if you live in the area, go cheer the ladies on as they sail into port.
Amazing Women Everywhere
While it’s definitely important to celebrate the athletic professionals who break boundaries and make history, I’m especially grateful for Team SCA’s Amazing Women Everywhere campaign and mosaic. What they’ve done is so cool – they’ve taken an image of Team SCA and turned it into a mosaic of amazing women everywhere. In other words, you can go upload your own photos to the mosaic to celebrate the women in your life who you think are amazing.
20 Women I’m Inspired By: Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors
This campaign has given me the perfect opportunity to celebrate the Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors. These women truly are amazing, and they’re conquering life in ways I couldn’t even begin to do myself. I’ve personally uploaded the following images to the Amazing Women Everywhere Mosaic, because these women (and all the others I couldn’t fit into this post!) deserve to be recognized, applauded and congratulated. Thank you, ladies, for inspiring me every day!
Don’t forget, you can upload your own inspirations to the mosaic!
SCA believes that everyone should have the opportunity to live life to the fullest, and we are committed to creating value for people and nature. To champion these ideals, SCA launches Amazing Women Everywhere, to celebrate women who have a positive impact on others.
The women of SCA’s all-female racing team, Team SCA, exemplify this spirit. They have come from all walks of life and backgrounds to take on one of the world’s most challenging endeavors, the Volvo Ocean Race. For nine months, their journey of hard work and determination will inspire millions around the world. Follow along with Team SCA on Facebook!
We aim to gather thousands of stories from all over the world and inspire thousands more by illustrating that amazing women truly are everywhere. Visit http://www.teamsca.com/awemosaic to submit a photo of an amazing woman in your life.
