Description

The Semper Fi & America's Fund Community Athlete Team consists of compassionate people who take the time and initiative to compete in athletic events while pledging to raise funds and awareness for Semper Fi & America's Fund's mission. Community Athletes compete in a variety of events: marathons, triathlons, softball, baseball, football, motorsports, equestrian, golfing, biking, climbing or any other event they would like to participate in.  

Our Community Athlete Team is for raising funds and awareness as you support through sport.  You must register for your events on your own.  When you register as a Community Athlete you will set up a free fundraising page to make collecting donations easy and safe.  You will also receive a free dri-fit shirt to train in, compete in and help to raise awareness.

Your fundraising helps give our service members, veterans, and military families the support they need after critical injury or illness. Together we can provide them with hope for the future and the comfort to know they are not alone during recovery.

Today, Tomorrow, Together. Help us make a difference in the lives of our service members, veterans, and military families and become a Community Athlete today!
