The Colgate Women’s Games Finals are being held this Sunday, April 24, at 11 a.m., at New York City’s iconic Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island. It will be an awe-inspiring experience as 250 of the nation’s most talented young female track and field athletes from the Northeast region compete for trophies and educational scholarships provided by the Colgate-Palmolive Company.
The event marks the 4th season and first outdoor series for CWG, the nation’s longest-running track and field series for girls and women. At the end of this season’s competition, nearly 5,000 scholarships will have been awarded to Colgate Women’s Games finalists.
The Finals will include a special musical performance of the new Colgate Women’s Games anthem, “Believe” by Grammy-nominated singer, poet and author Tarriona “Tank” Ball, and her critically acclaimed band Tank and the Bangas, in celebration of the thousands of CWG participants and alumna who aspire to achieve their personal best.
The New York Stock Exchange will recognize Colgate Women’s Games’ legacy on April 22 by having several CWG participants, alumna and Olympians, including Meet Director Cheryl Toussaint and two-time Olympian, Ajeé Wilson, ring the closing bell to promote the Finals on April 24 and to raise awareness of the Games.
The longtime mission of the Games remains the same: to continue creating pathways for girls and young women to pursue their educational goals and achieve their personal and athletic potential.
“The mission of the Colgate Women’s Games is now more important than ever,” said Paula S. Davis, chief communications officer at Colgate-Palmolive. “As we navigate through the ongoing pandemic, Colgate-Palmolive is proud that Colgate Women’s Games is once again back on track. The competition provides a fulfilling experience for our communities and empowers the next generation through educational scholarships, all of which helps fulfill our purpose to reimagine a healthier future for all.”
