Semper Fi Fund Community Athletes Campaign
Welcome to the Semper Fi Fund Community Athlete Campaign!
"Support Through Sport"
Providing much needed support, the Community Semper Fi Team consists of compassionate people who take the time and initiative to compete in athletic events, host athletic events and/or accomplish athletic feats, while supporting the Semper Fi Fund (SFF). Whether its competing in marathons, triathlons, softball games, baseball games, football games, motorsports, golfing, biking, climbing... any athletic event, our Community Athletes pledge to raise funds and awareness for SFF, in their efforts, and they usually have fun in the process!
By rallying communities in support of SFF, Community Athletes show our injured and ill servicemen and women that they are not forgotten and that "help is on the way." The funding and awareness raised in local communities by Community Athletes is an integral part of the support SFF needs to accomplish its mission. The donations fundraised, whether it is $1 or $10,000, go towards providing a better quality of life to our injured servicemembers and their families.
When you choose a goal in fundraising, think of the possible assistance you may be providing to our servicemembers. Raising funds to assist in providing:
Hand Controls in their vehicle (approx. $2,000)
Building a ramp into their home (approx. $10,000)
Bathroom modifications (approx. $25,000)
Visual impaired equipment (range $500-2,000)
or Adaptive sport equipment (approx. $2,000-5,000).
There are many other items and ways the fund helps our injured but these are examples of potential costs that your fundraising can go towards.
Whether you're a seasoned athlete or participating in your first event, your efforts can make a difference in the quality of life for our wounded!
Please note!? This campaign is for setting up your online fundraising page only. You must register for your sports event on your own.
