PHO3NIX ATHLETE PROGRAM

PHO3NIX ATHLETES PROGRAM

The Pho3nix Athlete Program aims to support athletes from any nation in any individual Olympic sport who are already qualified or on the pathway to qualification for the upcoming Summer Olympic Games.

While sending athletes to the Olympics is the pride of any nation, many athletes struggle for funding to allow them to compete on a level playing field. Too many juggle work commitments with training to pay their way, despite being among the best in their chosen sport.

 

The Olympic Games is the world’s biggest show, with the entire world engaged in this display of sportsmanship, human potential and hope. In supporting athletes through the Pho3nix Athlete Program, the Pho3nix Foundation aims not only to inspire kids but also to show them that sport and training, while not always smooth sailing, impart worthy lessons and a lifestyle worth pursuing, whether you win or participate.

 

The Pho3nix Foundation will provide funding for training, equipment, competition, and travel expenses to ensure these athletes arrive prepared to deliver their best on the world’s biggest stage and inspire their communities.

The Pho3nix Athlete Program also aims to amplify these athletes’ personal journey to fulfilling their Olympic dream, inspiring those who come next.

Their stories of rising above adversity, commitment and inspiration are at the very core of the Pho3nix Foundation’s goals to assist and inspire children through sport.
