BENEFITING: PROJECT ATHENA FOUNDATION
The Project Athena Foundation is a non-profit founded by Robyn Benincasa in 2007 and based in San Diego. Named for the Greek Goddess of wisdom and war, Project Athena assists women who've endured medical or traumatic setbacks in reaching their athletic and adventurous goals as a part of their recovery.
100% of public donations to the Project Athena Foundation will be used to help survivors through “Athenaships”. “Athenaships” are grants that allow survivors to participate in a selected outdoor adventure, and as Benincasa puts it, "help women get their groove back". We will assist with entry fees, airfare, coaching, inspiration, specialized equipment, etc, in an attempt to help survivors live their adventurous dreams! We will also attend several of the events and make our new friends feel like the superstars that they are!
Each Athenaship Recipient will also receive a Project Athena Racing jersey for their special event.
Project Athena is about bringing life and hope back and achieving a dream to those who have faced prolonged duress.
