With our summer track meets cancelled this year due to track construction at Moorestown HS, World Athlete lost its primary fundraising source. Going into 2016, World Athlete program fee revenues will not be enough to meet the demands of reduced/full tuition relief requests for many families. Also, World Athlete will not be able to fulfill its educational mission to mentor and train college interns. You can help with a generous donation.
