WHAT IS DUEL FOR THE SCHOOL?
Duel For the School is a fundraising campaign and event to help Fencing in the Schools fund fencing programs for 10,000 new students for the 2014-2015 school year.
From now until the May 31st event we'll be raising funds for our 2014-2015 school programs. The fundraising teams who raise the most money during this period will send their top donors to the Duel for the School event where they'll get a fencing lesson from an Olympian or other high-level fencer and compete against other teams for the Duel For the School cup!
Can’t make it to the event but want to help out anyway? Click on Donate to fund fencing for kids across the country. Just $20 provides 1 student with everything they need to begin fencing, including the use of specially designed, state of the art equipment and lessons from trained instructors.
Fencing in the Schools provides students with leadership skills and encourages healthy lifestyles by introducing them to the Olympic sport of fencing and presenting Olympian ambassadors as strong role models. Since its launch, Fencing in the Schools has introduced 10,000 kids to fencing across 7 states. Fencing in the Schools hopes to introduce 1 million kids to the sport by 2023.
