No industry or sector has been spared by the COVID-19 pandemic – and that includes sports. Whether they’re major league games or marathons, indoor or outdoor, the sports industry has seen a severe drop in revenue. That’s why the Endurance Sports Coalition is pushing for a solution: America’s Recovery Fund. As noted by the Beaverton Valley Times:
“The Endurance Sports Coalition also joined the America’s Recovery Fund Coalition, an alliance of more than 100 business and trade organizations pursuing a grant-based federal program to assist businesses impacted by COVID-19.”
Businesses as diverse as barbershops, construction equipment suppliers, financial services, and yes, endurance sports, are coming together to ask for more aggressive economic support from Congress. As the unemployment numbers continue to build and businesses face an uncertain future, America’s Recovery Fund Coalition is advocating on behalf of all industries being negatively affected by COVID-19.
