3rd annual Tucker Center Film Festival
TCF Bank Stadium
The Tucker Center and the University of Minnesota Athletics Department are excited to announce the 3rd annual Tucker Center Film Festival (TCFF) featuring the film, "Ready to Fly: The True Story of a Dream Worth Fighting For." [http://www.readytoflyfilm.com/]
This film provides a poignant example of how sportswomen continue to fight for access and equal opportunity to compete 40 years after the passage of Title IX. "Ready to Fly" follows 2009 World Champion Lindsey Van and the U.S. Womenís Ski Jumping team as they fight for the chance to compete at the Olympics. Ski jumping is the only Winter Olympic sport that does not allow women to compete. In her fight to make her Olympic dream a reality, Van becomes a reluctant spokesperson for the pursuit of gender equality and womenís rights.
The Tucker Center's screening of "Ready to Fly" is one of more than 1,000 events taking place across the country for the 27th annual celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD) [http://www.aahperd.org/nagws/programs/ngwsd]. Please join us for this canít miss, signature Tucker Center event.
