1,000 Days and Athletes for Hope (AFH) hosted a Capitol Hill reception to celebrate the accomplishments of the 2015 World Cup Champion U.S.. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNST) and raise support for nutrition initiatives leading up to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. USWNST star Ali Krieger spoke to the bi-partisan gathering to raise awareness about the importance of good nutrition, particularly for mothers and young children. It was also a great honor to be joined by Senators Susan Collins and Tim Kaine, who along with their colleagues Shelley Moore Capito, Ben Cardin, Bob Casey, Kelly Ayotte, Barbara Mikulski and Lisa Murkowski, also served as honorary co-hosts.
