Jasem Phillip's Junior Olympics Journey

Jasem needs your help to compete at the 53rd Annual AAU Junior Olympic Games 2019 being held this summer (July 24th to August 3rd) in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Jasem Phillip is a 14-year-old budding athlete who has the potential to become a top professional. He has numerous medals and trophies in both athletics (track and field) & football and hopes to one day compete at the highest levels on the international stage.

Living in West Palm Beach, Florida, Jasem currently runs for the Running Fire Track Team and plays football as a wide receiver with the 2019 Western Communities Football League (WCFL) Champions.   

In order for him to secure a spot at the upcoming 2019 Junior Olympics in North Carolina, he has to qualify through several meets. He most recently completed a meet in Orlando where he won 1 gold in the 3000 run/walk and 3 silver medals in the 1500m, 800m and the 3000m run. 

Jasem needs to raise US $4,000 for transportation, accommodation and meals for his 3 trips: Orlando, Tallahassee and North Carolina. We hope that you can contribute as he urgently needs to raise these funds.
