Women Helping Women (WHW) was established to enhance the knowledge and support of the University of Miami women’s athletic programs. Through fund raising and increased publicity, Women Helping Women will be able to positively impact fan support, while helping to market these dedicated, hard working female athletes and their teams. This will create an environment for learning and achievement for these future leaders, enabling these role models to give back to the community and have a positive influence on the youth of South Florida.
