Support on the Field

In honor of National Coming Out Day and Spirit Day, Skidmore athletes sported ribbons during their weekend games. 

 

National Coming Out Day honors those who have come out at LGBT or as allies. Athletes were provided rainbow ribbons to wear over competition weekends. Spirit Day asks participants to "go purple" and stand up against bullying of LGBT youth.

Earlier in the week, co-founder Clare Kenny sent a letter to Skidmore athletes sharing her own coming out story to encourage them to support their peers, teammates, coaches and community, during these national events.
