THE RACHEL WOOD PERSEVERANCE AWARD
Rachel Wood battled and triumphed over injuries and Crohn’s Disease to achieve her dream of being a professional athlete in the National Women’s Soccer League. She is an inspiration for those enduring similar autoimmune diseases, helping them believe that anything is possible. This annual award, which we present every December, symbolizes what Rachel stands for and honors others who have overcome significant obstacles in their lives to reach their goals in athletics.
