Do the T9 Countdown – Day 4: Show Off Those Battle Scars!

Countdown to Title IX Anniversary

Day 4: Show Off Those Battle Scars!

Former athletes, surgery sufferers, and daredevils of the world rejoice!  Today is the day to show off scarred knees, elbows, chins, shins – you name it!  If you’ve earned yourself a battle scar, we want to see it and hear the story behind it. In the words of Katy, whose well-loved knees you see below:

 


Ode to some well-used knees…

At age 13 it all began,
for an active girl who ran and ran.

 2 ACLs, a meniscus tear or two,
she didn’t cry or whine boo-hoo.

State HS basketball titles and DII ball,
took a few more surgeries, after all.

 6 hard years of rugby next were up,
even to London for the Nations Cup!

Today it’s boats, boards, and bikes,
anything active that she likes!

 The battle wounds and scars you see,
just tell the tale, don’t you agree?

 

 

Sure, they might be a bit unsightly to some, but if you ask us, plates, cadaver parts, and pins only help to make you a little more bionic so you can keep you doing what you love.  Share a picture and/or your story and you could win a Limited Edition Power of 9 Tee and Title Nine Water Bottle.  So come one, come all, to the showing of the scars that prove you’ve jumped, fallen, and gotten right back up. Don’t wait, get entered>

Title Nine - 40 Years
40 years ago Congress signed landmark legislation, Title IX, attacking the gender divide in sports. Today that divide has been virtually erased. In 1972, only 30,000 girls participated in high school sports. Today it’s over 3,000,000!! Because many of us here at Title Nine, including our founder, were there in the early years, we think there’s a lot to celebrate this year.
