She is an activist, speaker and founder of Together Rising, a non-profit organization that has raised over eleven million dollars for women, families and children in crisis. Abby Wambach is the all-time leading scorer in international soccer history with 184 career goals. After winning the Women’s World Cup in 2015, Wambach retired as one of the most dominant players in the history of women’s soccer.
