Jan Jensen, associate head coach for University of Iowa women’s basketball, will headline the Count the Kicks Changemakers Luncheon on April 17.
The event is an annual fundraiser for Healthy Birth Day Inc., the nonprofit that houses the Count the Kicks public health campaign. All proceeds benefit its mission to educate and empower expectant parents about the importance of kick counting in the third trimester of pregnancy.
Jensen will share her experiences as a former athlete, current coach and busy mom to motivate audience members. She is in her 23rd season with the Iowa women’s basketball team, and recently helped lead her team to the Final Four round of the NCAA women’s basketball tournament hours after her father died.
Tickets are on sale through April 3. The event will be held at 11:30 a.m. at the Iowa Events Center on April 17. More information can be found at the Count the Kicks website.
