Фонд оказывает оперативную адресную помощь спортсменам с инвалидностью и федерациям, когда нет возможности выделения средств из госбюджета на покупку инвентаря, экипировки, оплату выездов на соревнования. Особое внимание фонд уделяет тем видам спорта, которые еще не вошли в государственный реестр и поэтому не имеют госфинансирования. За 13 лет работы Фонд поддержал свыше 30 видов спорта.

Сделайте пожертвование при регистрации на забег или на сайте фонда «Точка опоры». Не бывает маленьких пожертвований — значима любая помощь.

Фонд содействует семейному устройству подростков-сирот, социализации и адаптация воспитанников детских домов через образование и поддержку наставниками.

Помочь фонду можно разными способами. Самый простой и понятный — отправить пожертвование в его адрес в момент регистрации на один из наших забегов в сезоне 2024. Ещё один вариант подойдёт к тем, кто хочет занять более активную позицию. Присоединяйтесь к программе фонда и становитесь бегунами во благо.
