Semper Fi Fund - Icon for Community Athlete Registration with Active

Register to become a Community Athlete and support our mission!

The Community Semper Fi Fund 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 for the Fund!

Community Semper Fi Team registrations are now open for our premier runs and we want you on our team!

We'd like to take a moment to express our gratitude for all our Community Athletes participating in races to raise money and support the Semper Fi Fund. Check out the event calendar below and see all the amazing individuals competing on behalf of the Semper Fi Fund.
