#TogetherBand for Health and Well-Being
I'm so proud to be an ambassador for #TogetherBand along with David Beckham supporting SDG #3 Good Health and Well-Being. We both share the passion for soccer and making the world a healthier and happier place for all. As Ambassadors we are committed to working together helping them further the United Nations' Global Goals 2030 Agenda.
I have lent my full support to #Togetherband's latest campaign, and called on famous USWNT goalkeeper Hope Solo to share my other band with. While David Beckham has shared his with LeBron James.
The #Togetherband campaign centers around 17 sustainably and ethically produced friendship bands. Each band is coloured to represent one of the 17 United Nations Global Goals, set in 2015 as a route map for a healthier more sustainable planet by 2030.
As a United Nations Agent of Peace, I am an advocate for gender-equal educational funding in the Americas with a focus on soccer. I see a new generation of strong young women as agents of change in their communities. In 2018, launched the ground-breaking initiative GOLEADORAS to build leadership in millions of teenage girls.
‘Good health and well-being comes when your mind, body and soul are in balance. That’s why sports specifically soccer are so important. I’m proud to be an Ambassador for the #TogetherBand and I support SDG No.3 Let’s work together for a healthier and happier place for all.’
“I know Hope Solo is as committed to changing the game as much as to goalkeeping and for that she is a leader.”
Available to buy here, each pack contains two bands, one to wear and one to share to help spread the word and show support for this Goal.
