Old Dominion women’s basketball legend Nancy Lieberman and Pepsi Stronger Together have announced that a $25,000 donation has been made to support scholarships for female athletes at ODU on the 50th anniversary of Title IX.
In addition, Pepsi Stronger Together will partner with Nancy Lieberman Charities to support the creation of a new basketball “Dream Court” at the East Ocean View Recreation Center in Norfolk. It will include a state-of-the-art outdoor basketball court, a supply of new basketballs and programming and mentorship on inclusion, social justice and civic engagement.
“Title IX was life-changing in granting me equitable access to sport and the opportunities it provides at the collegiate level,” Lieberman said. “With Dream Courts, our goal is to provide that access to children even earlier so they get on a pathway to success with a safe space to learn integral life skills to use on and off the court.”
