Since Team USA is helping me train for my first marathon (NYC in November), I'd like to use this time to help the U.S. Olympic Committee raise funds in order to send the best possible team to Sochi and Rio next year and in 2016, respectively. The USOC does not receive government funding, and therefore survives on donations from people like you and me. When you donate here, you're not donating to me; you're supporting the United States Olympic Team!
Team USA Endurance launched in 2013 and gets off and running with the 2013 ING New York City Marathon on Nov. 3. The U.S. Olympic Committee created this new fundraising and donor opportunity to provide fans with the opportunity to participate in a premier sports experience while generating support for U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes. In return, members receive the unique resources and guidance of USOC experts, as well as access to athletes, training plans and Team USA gear
Founded in 1894 and headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo., the U.S. Olympic Committee serves as both the National Olympic Committee and National Paralympic Committee for the United States. As such, the USOC is responsible for the training, entering and funding of U.S. teams for the Olympic, Paralympic, Youth Olympic, Pan American and Parapan American Games, while serving as a steward of the Olympic and Paralympic Movements throughout the country. The USOC is a non-profit organization that receives no government funding, and instead, relies on the donations of sponsors and donors to support Team USA. For more information, visit TeamUSA.org.
