Fairfax Athletes Stand Together

Fairfax Athletes Stand Together (F.A.S.T.) is a collaborative network of county government, community nonprofits and athletic organizations from around the county. Together, they utilize their combined resources to provide valuable assistance to underserved populations in Fairfax County.

  • F.A.S.T. seeks to provide those in need with quality of life essentials (including food, clothing and other household items).
  • F.A.S.T. strives to cultivate opportunities to remove language, access to equipment and facilities, transportation and financial barriers for athletic participation in Fairfax County.
  • F.A.S.T. facilitates the open exchange of information to emphasize best practices which cultivate a positive and rewarding experience for players, coaches, officials and spectators.
