Today, on Giving Tuesday, we are asking for your help. Thanks to the generosity of a member of the USA Judo family, up to a total of $10,000 in contributions will be matched to support our athletes on the Road to Paris.
Gifts from the USA Judo family direct support USA Judo’s Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls with travel and training funds as well as coaching on the international circuit. When completing the online donation form, you can choose to support Olympic or Paralympic athletes as well as the athletes of the future through our youth funding. If you have another area you would like to support directly, please contact Keith.Bryant@usajudo.us.
By supporting USA Judo athletes on Giving Tuesday, you will be doing more than just donating – your kindness will make it possible for America’s judoka to reach their dreams in Paris and beyond.
