LOVE FOR ATHENA
“I LOVE FAB Camp because it is so much FUN! We got to meet many new people! I learned so much in just the first week and I am looking forward to what the future weeks will bring me! Thank you to all the hard workers that are making this program available to us girls!”

“All of Athena Racing’s events offer unique experiences or connections you seriously can’t find elsewhere. Between meeting the numerous incredible guests at FABCamp, to learning new skills in the workshops, Athena Racing truly connects and prepares you for these industries. The more you put into the program, attending events and getting involved, the more you’ll get out of it.”
~Shayne, Member 2020
“We were very excited to learn about Athena racing and how young girls are encouraged here to believe in themselves and achieve something that they never thought they could or they feared to try. We are hopeful that our daughter will build confidence, strength, strategy and skill that help her find a hero in herself and be encouraged to become a future leader.”
~Parents of FABcamper, Surahbi
