Martina Navratilova's Fundraising Page
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! As you may know I am climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania this December to raise money for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.
Laureus supports 80 projects around the globe, including four right here in the US, that use sport to tackle some of the world's most pressing social issues. Sport has obviously had a massively beneficial impact on my life and I believe, as Nelson Mandela, once said that it has the power to change the world.
I was one of the lucky ones, in that I had sporting opportunities available to me when I was young. But not everyone is so fortunate: from the slums of Nairobi to the favelas of Rio to the projects of the Bronx: Laureus helps give kids a sporting chance.
Even for an athlete like me Kilimanjaro will be a major challenge, so please donate what you can to support me in my quest. Donating through FirstGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Best wishes and many thanks
