The program is supported by Western New York Girls in Sports, which was founded by Mary Wilson, wife of former Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson Jr., in 2006, with the goal of enhancing girls’ lives through participation in sports. Wilson’s passion for sports was the motivation for creating WNY GIS and developing its focus on teaching young girls and women the important life lessons that sports offer.
