Are you a runner, bicyclist or triathlete who competes in organized races around the world? Maybe you’re a hobbyist who prefers to exercise in the comfort of your own backyard?
Whatever your level may be — you now have an opportunity to add a philanthropic angle to your passion.
Introducing Team Greek America, a virtual team of runners, triathletes, cyclists and other athletes who want to race for a cause.
The ancient Greeks imported their wisdom on us that “Νους υγιής εν σώματι υγιεί,” meaning in English, “A sound mind also needs a sound body” in order for an individual to be complete.
Athletes who join Team Greek America are running for a bigger cause than themselves. They support the Greek America Foundation’s Project Hope for Greece #ChildrenOfGreece campaign, which supports charities in Greece that help underprivileged youth.
Are you registered for a race, marathon or any kind of individual competition anywhere in the world? Join Team Greek America today and support our #ChildrenOfGreece campaign. And if you’re not registered for an official event then you can create your own virtual competition in a way that conveniences you. Click here to complete our online sign-up form.
What we do
We provide you with a personalized fundraising page that you can share with your family and friends. We also offer publicity on our various social media platforms to let people know about your efforts.
We will provide you with an athletic shirt that shows your involvement with Team Greek America. You can wear this during training, or even during your race, and share your pride!
As an added bonus, in a single calendar year (January 1 through December 31), the athlete that raises the most funds as part of Team Greek America will win a trip to Greece to run in the Athens Marathon, or a race of your choice. Flight and hotel expenses will be covered by the Greek America Foundation, sponsored by our generous travel and hospitality partners.
