US Deaf Women's National Team Needs Your Help to Defend Championship Title
As the winning team of the last three Deaf World Cups, they have proven to have the talent, although the USDWT's lack of funding has become an undeniable obstacle. And unlike every other team participating in the competition, the USDWT receives no national funding.
If you're still not sure why you should root for the USDWNT, maybe Kate Ward, one of the team's talented players, can convince you:
"If you're a woman, or you have a sister, daughter, aunt, or mother, you should cheer for my teammates because they are everything a female role model should be — strong, determined, intelligent, and successful and willing to take risks. If you’re an American, you should cheer for us because we represent the red, white, and blue. If you're deaf, you should cheer for us because we are striving to destroy stereotypes, break barriers, and bring awareness to the deaf community. Oh: And we win."
