Tracey Fuchs , U.S.A. Field Hockey Olympian
“I was so excited when I heard about A Sister’s Hope, for a lot of reasons. I am one of four girls in my family, so being a sister is a big deal for me. It means that I know that I have others who I can depend on and who will be there for me no matter what.
It means that I have three sisters that I watch out for and whose successes I celebrate, just like they do for me. The message of A Sister’s Hope is “let’s be there for each other, let’s commit to something important (beating breast cancer), let’s work hard and persevere, and let’s WIN!” When I was an Olympic athlete, and through all my years of playing field hockey at every level, that’s exactly the spirit that my sisters and I had for each and every sports challenge (they all played field hockey too!): get out there, try your hardest, work together, believe in yourself, and make a difference. Whether it’s field hockey, a golf tournament or a walk to raise money, or any other of life’s challenges, the principles are the same: we all have something special to contribute, and if we put our minds and bodies to it, we can make a real difference. I’m thrilled to be an Ambassador for A Sister’s Hope, because I know we CAN make that difference, if we all work together!”
