Support Through Sport
The Community Semper Fi Team consists of compassionate people who take the time and initiative to compete in athletic events, host athletic events, and/or accomplish athletic feats while supporting the Semper Fi Fund. Because fundraising is a competitive endeavor, we consider all members of the Community Semper Fi Team, our Community Athletes!
By rallying communities in support of the Semper Fi Fund, Community Athletes show our injured and ill servicemen and women that they are not forgotten, and that "help is on the way." The funding and awareness that is raised by Community Athletes is an integral part of the support system that the Semper Fi Fund needs to accomplish its mission.
Community Athletes compete in marathons, triathlons, softball games, baseball games, football games, motorsports, golfing, biking, climbing, or even simply conduct a letter writing or fundraising campaign. They pledge to raise funds and awareness for the Semper Fi Fund throughout their generous efforts, and they usually have fun in the process!
Whether you are a seasoned athlete or participating in your first event, your efforts can make a difference in the quality of life for our nation's injured service members.
Come Run with the Fund!
Community Semper Fi Team registrations are now open for our premier runs and we want you on our team!
