The mission of Project Athena is to help women with breast cancer and other medical or traumatic setbacks live their athletic and adventurous dreams through the Project Athena Foundation. Awareness for Project Athena will be achieved through the ultra endurance endeavors of an experienced and high profile all-female adventure team who embody the spirit of Athena.
Project Athena is a non-profit foundation that encourages women to not just survive--but go on to STRIVE after enduring life altering yet life affirming medical conditions. Project Athena provides coaching, equipment, travel expenses, entry fees, and, most importantly, encouragement and inspiration for women who desire to unleash the athlete within and strive for the goal of a lifetime--whether that be to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, cross the finish line of an Ironman Triathlon, or fall into the arms of a proud family at the end of a local 5K.
Keep the dream alive. It's our mission to help you make it happen.
About Project Athena Foundation
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”.
