My name is Cade Van Etten, I am 9 years old and have been snowboarding for 5 years.
I have competed in the USASA Southwest Freeride series for the past 3 year and have won many competitions. Last year I won my regional series in Slopestyle. I also had two 3rd place finishes in Rail Jam and was invited to the United States of America Snowboard Association National Championships where I placed 21st in Slopestyle and 31st in Rail Jam. In February 2013 I was awarded the USASA HiChew High Flyer award for the most improved rider. The National Championships were an amazing experience for me and I hope to compete there again this year.
This season I have received one 1st place, two 2nd place finishes in Rail Jam and two 2nd place finishes in Slopestyle.

Your donation will go toward my expenses at the USASA National Championships, held at Copper Mountain, CO. and help me attend summer snowboard camp where I can further my skills.
Anything you can give- anything at all- would mean the world to me. Thank you so much for your consideration and time.
