Each month, Blackman & Sloop CPAs, P.A. highlights a client that represents business integrity and the spirit of community. It is our honor to present this month’s spotlight on The Mia Hamm Foundation.

Mia Hamm Logo

A non-profit, national organization founded in 1999, The Mia Hamm Foundation was created to provide support for two important causes: raising funds and awareness for families needing marrow or cord blood transplants and continuing the growth in opportunities for young women in sports.

In 1997, Olympic medalist and soccer star Mia Hamm’s brother Garrett passed away from complications related to aplastic anemia. Each year, the Foundation hosts an all-star exhibition soccer match, “The Garrett Game” to raise awareness and funds for bone marrow disease research, and to support families through the marrow transplant process.

Mia Hamm And All Stars

Mia’s other passion was to be a mentor for young women who are interested and want to get involved in sports. The foundation helps through numerous resources to further the development of programs and initiatives for young women in sports.

Blackman & Sloop is proud to be a partner in providing services to The Mia Hamm Foundation. To learn more information about their services, visit http://www.miafoundation.org/.
