Honoring The 2017 Toyota Everyday Heroes

Launched at the 2013 espnW: Women + Sports Summit, the Toyota Everyday Heroes program honors women who are working to promote and grow sports for girls and women in their local communities.

Meet The 2017 Everyday Heroes


Hunter, a 2016 Paralympic gold medalist, runs the Arlington, Texas-based Lady Mavericks Wheelchair Basketball team. The overarching mission is to empower disabled girls and women through basketball, showing them that they can be strong, successful and independent while advocating for themselves. Hunter leads the team, runs its fundraising and camps, and is also a player. In the long term, the Lady Mavericks would like to expand their camps and the number of participants so they can continue to make a difference in the lives of disabled girls and women.
