Support USA Trail Orienteering

Orienteering USA's Annual Fund Drive is underway. We hope you will consider making a donation earmarked to support the US Trail Orienteering Team.

How to Donate:
Orienteering USA's DONATE page provides information for making both online donations and mailing in a donation. Donations must be directed to "Team USA: Trail O Team" to insure that the team receives your support.

Why should I support Trail Orienteering?
Trail Orienteering is a precision map reading competition developed to provide an orienteering discipline for the disabled. The US Trail Orienteering Team fields a squad of both paralympic and open competitors for the World Championships annually. In addition, team members attend National competitions to hone their skills and qualify for the team. Travel and competition costs are born almost entirely by the competitors. Your support helps to defray these costs making it possible for those with limited resources to participate. This is especially critical for those disabled competitors with fixed disability incomes.

We are currently working to recruit new paralympic team members. Funding may be critical to enable potential candidates to afford the travel costs associated with training and competition.

How will my donation be used?
US Trail Orienteering funds may be used for the following purposes:
1) To pay entry and accreditation fees for team members at international competitions.
2) To defray travel expenses for team members at international competitions.
3) To support expenses related to recruitment and training of promising paralympic team candidates.

Thank you for your support!
