The Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation on Wednesday announced a $50,000 Sports Matter donation to Share My Passion girls golf clinics, an initiative of LPGA legend Annika Sörenstam’s Annika Foundation.
The Share My Passion clinics introduce young girls ages six to 12 to the game of golf while also giving them a behind-the-scenes tour of a professional golf event. These events include a healthy lunch, instructional stations and a golfing clinic taught by World Golf Hall of Famer Sörenstam.
“The Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation Sports Matter grant will be used to develop Share My Passion clinics for The Annika Foundation, helping Annika to continue to share and grow her love of the game with young girls,” said James Rooney, director of The Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation. “The Dick’s Foundation is thrilled to partner with Annika on her charitable endeavors and welcomes her to the Sports Matter family.”
Since 2014, Dick’s Sporting Goods and The Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation have pledged over $50 million to support teams and raise awareness of the importance of youth sports across the country through its Sports Matter initiative. To learn more, visit sportsmatter.org.
