Living the dream telethon - live fri. Aug 20
Join the Living The Dream Medal Fund on Friday, August 20 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern Time for the inaugural Living The Dream Medal Fund Telethon.
Last year, our World Team Athletes called those on the list, thanking them for their support of the athlete incentive program that rewards our American medal winners with bonuses. Jake Herbert and Dremiel Byers finished second in the World last year, netting them a $25,000 bonus courtesy of your donations to the Living The Dream Medal Fund. Tervel Dlagnev's bronze medal earned him an additional $15,000.
Phone lines will be open for you to call in and donate to the program to continue to reward World & Olympic medals. All funds raised go directly to the fund and directly to the athletes.
