The Yury Gelman Foundation is a charitable organization that uses the Olympic sport of fencing in a way that assists economically challenged youth to establish essential life skills of self-discipline and organization, goal setting, strong study habits and a solid work ethic.
The Foundation supports these developing athletes by offering the following opportunities:
“My dream is to give everyone a chance to have access to the sport of fencing and to create strong members of our society. I want to help children become leaders, see the world, and be part of our community. We will teach these students self-discipline, mental acuity, the ability to work hard, and to go over their limit in sports and academics. We will offer instruction with the best coaches and create well-rounded and successful individuals.”
