Applications for Adventures for Women Survivors of Trauma
The Project Athena Foundation is dedicated to helping women survivors of medical or other traumatic setbacks achieve their adventurous dreams. The foundation provides travel expenses, coaching, equipment, and the encouragement and inspiration needed to help these women make the life-affirming transition from survivor to athlete.
The foundation offers several yearly adventures that provide mental and physical challenges in a non-competitive environment. The goal is for the participant to have something to look forward to, a goal set to accomplish, and to be surrounded by like-minded people. In 2018-19, the foundation is offering the following adventures: San Diego Cove to Harbor Marathon Trek 2018, Florida Keys to Recovery 2018 (waitlist pending), San Diego Harbor to Harbor Trek April 2019, Grand Canyon Rim-2-Rim-2-Rim Trek August 2019, Grand Canyon Rim-2-Rim Trek August 2019, San Diego Cove to Harbor Marathon Trek 2019, and Florida Keys to Recovery 2019.
A medical or traumatic setback can be defined as, but is not limited to, cancer, congenital defects, neurological disorders, autoimmune disorders, amputations, and posttraumatic stress disorder.
Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis in March, June, September, and December.
