Our Story Becomes Her Story

In 2013, University of Oregon donors approached athletic department administrators about bridging the gap for women’s athletics. Research was conducted around the country, examining programs with a focus on fundraising for women’s athletics and initial planning for Oregon’s one of a kind program began.

With a generous donation from Dave and Nancy Petrone, Women In Flight was founded in 2014.
