This year Armpocket decided to partner with Project Athena to empower thru adventure. This gives us the opportunity to work with an amazing organization and meet some wonderful people.
PROJECT ATHENA: EMPOWERING THRU ADVENTURE!
WHAT IS PROJECT ATHENA?
Project Athena is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping women survivors of medical or other traumatic setbacks achieve their adventurous dreams. They provide travel expenses, coaching, equipment, and most importantly, the encouragement and inspiration needed to help these strong, amazing women make that life-affirming transition from Survivor to Athlete.
“It’s not about trying to get back to what you were,” explains Project Athena Founder and World Champion Adventure Racer, Robyn Benincasa. “It’s about trying to be the best of what you’re capable of today, this minute. The most gratifying thing is the moment when you see someone realize they’re going to make it, when you see the fear disappear and they realize how awesome they truly are!”
Project Athena currently offer six yearly adventures that provide mental and physical challenges in a non-competitive environment. The goal is to have something to look forward to, a goal set to accomplish, and for the women to surround themselves with like-minded people. At Project Athena, it’s all about teamwork and being a part of the family.
PROJECT ATHENA & ARMPOCKET PARTNERSHIP
To start our partnership, Armpocket donated armbands to Project Athena’s lead adventurers. This gave them the chance to be hands free while still being connected in the event they need to be. You can never be to safe on an adventure and having a way to communicate with the outside world is paramount to everyone’s safety.
Next, Armpocket offered all of Project Athena’s Gods and Goddesses a special discount to help ease the cost of being properly outfitted for their adventures. Since those involved in the program are in the process of building themselves back up, we don’t want money to be a barrier when it comes to achieving their true potential.
Armpocket will also use its connections and say in the health and fitness community to promote this amazing group of people and get them the recognition they deserve. Using social, PR, and other channels we will spread the message of Project Athena.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Project Athena accepts general donations and donations made on behalf of a participant in the program.
