: Athena is the Greek Goddess of Wisdom and War--which is very fitting for the founders of Project Athena, whose hard-earned wisdom has come from an ongoing war with breast cancer, the Parvo Virus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. But instead of sitting back and taking these medical setbacks like the ladies we are, we're instead driven to embrace and squeeze every last drop out of life every day through training for and racing in the world's toughest endurance events. And we want you to join us.
*The Project Athena Foundation will give scholarships (aka “Athenaships”) to one or more applicants on a quarterly basis. This depends on the level of donations, of course, but we’re sure it won’t take too long for our friends, family and the community to embrace this endeavor!
*100% of public donations to the Project Athena Foundation will be used to help survivors live their athletic dreams. We will assist with entry fees, airfare, coaching, specialized equipment, etc, in an attempt to help survivors reach their goals.
*The Project Athena Foundation will build and maintain the www.projectathena.org website, where quarterly applications for “Athenaships” will be taken and success stories, coaching/training tips, and photos of our athletes' endeavors will be shared.
*The athletes and coaches of the Project Athena Racing Team will provide ongoing training, coaching, and inspiration (Free! Yay!) to Athenaship Recipients. We will also attend several of the events and make our new friends feel like the superstars that they are!
*Each Athenaship Recipient will receive a Project Athena Racing jersey for their special event. This will be a reminder to the athletes and those around them to always try to see “challenges” in life and not “roadblocks”.
