WOMEN'S SPORTS FOUNDATION DELAYS WOMEN'S GLOBAL CHALLENGE
Published October 26, 1998
The Women's Sports Foundation Board of Trustees has elected not to move forward with a proposed '99 Women's Global Challenge and will instead shift its focus toward a 2001 launch of the DC-based event. Women's Sports Foundation President Benita Fitzgerald Mosley: "We found corporate America to be very receptive and excited about the event. However, 1999 sponsorship resources were simply not available to assure the level of support we needed for a first-class launch of the Challenge" (Women's Sports Foundation). Both Lifetime and CBS had signed as media partners for the '99 Global Challenge (THE DAILY).
