Mary Jo Kane, PhD, a professor emerita in the School of Kinesiology and director emerita of the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport, was featured in the University of Minnesota’s Legacy Magazine’s Summer 2020 issue. The article, “Leveling the Field,” highlights Kane’s groundbreaking work in supporting girls’ and women’s ability to have safe and fair access to sports, and notes her own committed estate gift to the Tucker Center.
To help ensure the future work of the Tucker Center, Kane made the estate gift to establish the David and Janie Kane Endowed Tucker Center Director Fund, which honors her late siblings. “David and Janie were incredibly proud of my accomplishments, and the Tucker Center reflects their passions,” she says. “This gift is a way to honor their memories and carry forward our family name.”
