|As you know, the postponement of the Tokyo Games has been devastating to many U.S. athletes and para-athletes. But theGiving Games,which launched today, brings individual U.S. sports together and asks fellow Americans to support and sustain our athletes’ para-athletes' journeys to the 2021 Games.
AMERICANS SEND AMERICAN ATHLETES TO INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION
Unlike most of our competing nations, U.S. athletes and para-athletes, and the sports organizations that support them, do not receive government funding. Therefore, these athletes are required to self-support through individual donations, sponsorships, memberships and event revenues.
GIVING GAMES FUNDRAISER
Between today and August 9 (the original dates of the Tokyo 2020Games), USA Karateis conducting a direct fundraising campaign, asking for your support to fund our athletes and our mission to support world class Karate personnel of the highest caliber and of the highest integrity.
The USA Karate has within its ranks some of the finest Karate athletes in the world. The organization has within its technical, administrative, referee, medical and athlete corps an impressive group of competent, internationally certified, world class Karate persons, dedicated to perpetuating Karate-do. But we need YOUR HELP!
