This year, Boston Scores celebrates girls and women in sport. Sport has the power to change lives. By teaching girls teamwork, self-reliance, resilience and confidence, sport is one of the great drivers of gender equality:
Girls who participate in sports are more likely to experience academic success and graduate from high school than those who do not play sports.
Female high school athletes are 41% more likely to graduate from college within six years compared to female high school students who did not participate in sports.
Women and girls who participate in sports have lower drop out rates, have lower pregnancy rates, and are less likely to use drugs, than non-participants
Situated just steps from Boston's World Trade Center, Morton's The Steakhouse is a fixture in the city's burgeoning Waterfront district. The Morton's dining experience includes a unique wine collection, prime-aged beef, signature sides and elegant desserts - all included as part of our Celebration menu.
