A project of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DEAF TRACK & FIELD INC
Send Joanel Lopez to Sofia 2013
USA Deaflympics Track and Field team has selected Joanel Lopez to represent USA at the 22nd Deaflympics in Sofia, Bulgaria this upcoming July. Joanel has met the high standard criteria with excellent performance. Joanel will participate in the Shot Put and Hammer. Because we do not receive any funding from the government or US Olympics Committee, each athlete has to raise $3900 for the Deaflympics. It is a burden for each athlete to train hard and raise funds. The USA Deaflympics Track and Field asks that you recognize the great accomplishments Joanel has done to land a spot on the team by donating to the cause.
Be it as small as $25 or as large as $500, each dollar will go a long way. Please note that any donation of $50 or more will get a USA Deaf Track and Field Thank You card for tax purpose. USA Deaf Track and Field, Inc. is a non-profit organization with 501-c-3 status in good standing.
Come and support Joanel. Spread the word.
