For the first time, a global alliance of Armenian athletes has formed - the Armenian Sports Hall of Fame (ArmHOF). With over 50 so far, pro and amateur athletes represent a cross section of sports/geographies and the roster continues to grow each day.
As a response to the tens of thousands of Armenians that were displaced from Artsakh, ArmHOF is hosting a virtual fundraiser of unique sports memorabilia. Please see the attached flyer for details and please share with your contacts. Proceeds will support the Artsakh Relocation Project that has already helped over 3,000 refugees with food and other necessities. Visit www.armhof.com/shop to support the fundraiser.
“Not only are we connecting the Armenian community through sports, we’re planning initiatives for our athletes to give back and inspire our youth,” said Roman Mitichyan, ArmHOF Board Member. These initiatives range from participating in virtual fundraisers to hosting sports clinics at children’s summer camps in Armenia and the diaspora.
ArmHOF plans to host an annual "induction," recognizing sports legends for their contributions to the Armenian community. Follow ArmHOF on Instagram @armhof.
