This program is being offered free of charge, so no deserving child is denied the chance to attend. Although this program is run almost entirely by volunteers, there are some expenses such as food (snacks and drinks), equipment, and staff. Even if most of the necessary equipment is donated by fencing gear vendors, some equipment still needs to be purchased. Besides fencers, who volunteer their time, we strive to have one adult coach and at least one nurse on premises at all times. We definitely will need to pay the nurse and the coach. Without your invaluable donation this program wouldn’t be able to exist. Today we ask you to give as much as you can. If you can make a difference for only one child, it is worthwhile! Please donate! Get involved!
