The Merrell/Akali Adventure Team (a roster of 11 inspiring and talented athlete ambassadors) and The Project Athena Racing Team will compete in several high profile team-based adventure events this year. The outdoor sports in which they will compete include: Trail Running, Ultra Running, Mountain Biking, Road Biking, Endurance Paddling, Mountaineering, Snowshoeing, Orienteering, Endurance Road Cycling and Adventure Racing .
Project Athena is a non-profit foundation that encourages women who’ve endured life-altering medical or traumatic setbacks to unleash the athlete or adventurer within and complete the journey of a lifetime – whether that is climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, crossing the finish line of an Ironman Triathlon or falling into the arms of a proud family at the end of a local 5K.
Project Athena provides travel expenses, entry fees, coaching, equipment and, most importantly, the encouragement and inspiration to help strong, amazing women make that life-affirming transition from survivor to athlete.
