Isle of Man Athletics Launches Island Games Crowdfunding Page

The Isle of Man Athletics Association is pleased to announce the launch of a fundraising initiative for the Island Games being held in Gotland in June 2017.

The Island Games is a key event in the athletics calendar for all those islands that participate in the games.  Isle of Man Athletics is looking to send a team of 30 to the games in Gotland (Sweden) this summer comprising 26 athletes, 3 managers and a sports therapist. It will cost approx. £1400 per person to send this team, much of which will be self-funded.

We are appealing to the athletics community, the general public and businesses of the Isle of Man to help fund the Athletics Team getting to the games.

In short, we want the Team Isle of Man Athletics to be powered into the Gotland 2017 games by the whole of our Island.

Please click here to visit the crowdfunding page and pledge your support.

Any support you can give to support our athletes get to Gotland will be most appreciated.
