What We Do
Run the Bases tackles gender inequality by delivering sport and education programmes to create opportunities for children and youth – on and off the field.
RTB was born out of an idea by former UCLA Softball Player, Tara Henry. To her, sport was about hard work, dedication, managing relationships and ultimately, winning. Through volunteering with various sports organisations and pursuing post-graduate education, Tara got involved with the EU-funded programme Inclusion and Gender Equality Through Softball (IGETS). This project is what inspired her to form a softball organisation that focused on life skills as well as community development.
“Softball is such an inclusive sport. You can be any shape, size, gender, sexuality – anyone can play the game.” – Tara Henry
