Who we are...
Athletes United is a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to making a positive impact on our youth in the South Lake Tahoe community. Our mission is to foster the participation and enjoyment of endurance sports so that kids are engaged in a healthy, active lifestyle. It is our hope that this leads to a future of health, fitness, positive choices and many, many successes.
Through your generous donations and the hard work of the AU team of volunteers, we are able to support local youth in their sports endeavors.
Athletes United's main source of fundraising comes from serving as the volunteer coordinator for the Rock Tahoe Half Marathon and from donations from participants of the race. AU has granted over $50,000 back to the South Shore Community over the last five years. Here are a few of the ways we've given back: Rec Center Scholarships, funding for elementary school track meets, kids triathlons, equipment for track and cross-country teams.
