You can help sending a track and field athlete to the 23rd Summer Deaflympics in Samsun, Turkey by making a financial contribution today.

Description:

USA Deaf Track and Field, INC has established the core
USA Deaflympics Track and Field Team and Development
Team based on our rigorous criteria (you can view the
qualifying standard on our website - www.usadtf.org) to
showcase their talents on the international platform when
they travel to Samsun, Turkey, 18-30 July, 2017 to
compete at the 23rd Summer Deaflympics. The Summer
Deaflympics, world’s 2nd oldest international competition
next to the Olympics, are among the world's fastest
growing sporting events. More than 2,500 Deaf athletes
and officials from 77 nations participated in the 22nd
Summer Deaflympics in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2013. The
Games are built over 90 years of tradition. Organized
since 1924 by the Comité International des Sports des
Sourds (The International Committee of Sports for the
Deaf), the first Summer Deaflympics was held in Paris,
France. The International Olympic Committee (IOC)
sanctions the Summer Deaflympics.


The USA Deaflympics Track and Field brought 19 athletes
and grabbed 13 medals (3 Gold, 5 Silver and 5 Bronze) at
the 22nd Deaflympics, Sofia, Bulgaria. The entire USA
Team brought home 29 medals altogether. We look to
have a stronger USA Deaflympics Track and Field team in
2017.


We will have 30-35 athletes this time. We will wait to see
if we get more qualified athletes after this spring season.
We can not do much without your contributions. You are
the key to the success these athletes are expected to do.
Without contributions, some of athletes will have to stay
behind. We do not want this to happen.


First thing first!


In order for these athletes to showcase their God-given
talents, they have to raise $5,000 to cover everything from
uniforms to international airfares to meals and lodging to
insurance to training camp to mention some. We do not
get financial assistance from the US Olympics Committee
or the US government. We depend on the private sector
to support the team.


Each athlete has worked, trained and making sacrifices to
get where they are now, at the brink of going overseas to
Samsun to represent our beloved country, United States of
America. We ask you to dig deep in your pockets and
donate in support of our USA athletes!


Unlike the hearing athletes, the deaf and hard of hearing
athletes do not get any financial help from government or
big sponsors. Many of hearing athletes may get monetary
rewards while the deaf and hard of hearing do not get any,
but hearty hugs and pats on the back. Those competing
at the Deaflympics do it our of love for the sport.


Be PATRIOTIC and donate!


Go USA Go!!!
