EJ Obiena was raised to be a champion with the support of his community – his family, his coaches, and all his partners who believed in him. Given all of his record-breaking achievements, EJ now wants to give back the same belief and support to his fellow Filipino athletes by creating training pits and programs all around the Philippines. He believes the talent of Filipinos can compete at a global scale with the correct facilities, coaching, and community.

With Katapulting EJ Obiena’s Dream – the funds will be allocated into:
1) creation of pole vault training pits and
2) a training program that will be overseen by Coach Emerson Obiena himself – to train both potential pole vault athletes and aspiring pole vault coaches.

This fundraiser aims to build and level up the pole vault community in the country – enabling more athletes to eventually break their own records and win their own medal.
This will be EJ Obiena’s hope and legacy for years to come.
