11th IOFTC in Portland was a great success with nearly 250 competitors! Thanks to all our competitors, referrees, officials, volunteers and guests from many countries around the globe for making this another memorable event.
IOFTC has deep roots in Nepal - the first IOFTC was held in Nepal, and we've been back several times since. Nepal has also sent teams to most of the other championships. Although the IOFTC is not a development, or a recovery, organization we are a friendship organization – and friends can help friends when an earthquake devastates a country. So the IOFTC has created Nepalese Rebuild for the explicit purpose of raising money to help Nepal. Initial funds were directed to MercyCorps, an established aid organization with a presence in Nepal.
