Elijah Thrower, of Austin Jr. High School, have been selected to represent the United States of America and participate in the United World Games with Student Athlete World June 17-26, 2019. Players from all over the country will join together to compete on an international stage playing in Germany, Italy, and Austria. This educational and athletic experience of a lifetime will give him the opportunity to explore new cultures, give him a better understanding of the world around him, allow him to meet people from all over the world, and learn valuable life lessons through international travel.
Players are chosen for this from a pool of applicants from around the country based on a combination of athletic attributes as well as academics, leadership abilities, and character. In order for this trip to be a success, Elijah and his father, Shelley, need to raise money to cover their expenses. Any donation you can give would go directly towards expenses. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Elijah to participate in international sport competition. Elijah thanks you in advance for your help and prayers!
