Uniting community

We awarded 23 CAMBRIDGE WINS Sports Equity Grants this summer to support local sports programs providing healthy, team-building activities for all youth and addressing inequities in access and opportunity in Cambridge.

“As the foundation of and for all of Cambridge, we know sports to be a great connector that can stitch together our community, create a ‘level playing field’, and open-up new possibilities for Cambridge youth,” said Geeta Pradhan, CCF president. “We’d like to thank each coach, athlete, and community leader supported by these grants for sparking energy and ambition in our young people.”
