LAKE PLACID — Athletes and community organizations are invited to apply to Adirondack Foundation’s Uihlein-Ironman Sports Fund (UISF) now through Tuesday, August 30. The Uihlein-Ironman Sports Fund (UISF) was established by the Henry Uihlein II and Mildred A. Uihlein Foundation, Ironman North America — now known as World Triathlon Corporation — and the Adirondack Foundation.

These organizations teamed up to help athletes from Lake Placid and the Olympic region achieve their sports dreams, and to help nonprofit organizations that foster and promote life-long sports and healthy lifestyles for local kids. The fund awarded nearly $33,000 in grants and scholarships last year.

Eligible applicants include competitive athletes in the greater Lake Placid/Olympic region with regional, national and international promise, as well as nonprofits, schools and municipal programs that involve area youth in traditional sports.

Race fees, training camps, travel, equipment and organized club activities all qualify as acceptable expenses.


The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, August 30.

Applications must be submitted online at
