As many of you know, the devastation in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria has been horrific and impacted many fencers ability to train and compete in their home country. There has been a generous response from the USA Fencing family as many clubs and families have offered athletes a place to train in the U.S for the next few months. If you wish to donate to the efforts led by Olympian Iris Zimmermann, please visit the GoFundMe site here.
In addition, clubs in Puerto Rico are starting to rebuild and are seeking equipment donations. If individuals or clubs are interested in donating equipment, the donation location information is below:
