2017 World Championships Campaign

$1,070 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 17 months
Created August 6, 2017
Dear Friends:
I will be making one last appearance at the Grappling World Championships this October in Azerbaijan!

This spring, at the age of 40, I won the world team trials in Las Vegas. I am now preparing to represent Team USA one last time - but I can't do it alone.

In order to make this trip possible, I need to raise $3500 to cover international flights, hotels, and other tournament costs. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

Please donate ANY amount possible - EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS. Your support is appreciated! Each donation and/or sponsorship of $100+ will be recognized on social media.

Please share this page with others and help me win another medal for Team USA!

I had some great training with some great people this week. I'm super excited to make one last run at the world championships in Baku, Azerbaijan. The tournament is in mid-October. I've got about one month left to train and fund raise. Thank you so much for all the support thus far. Please keep sharing and posting. I appreciate all the help.

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far! We had a great weekend of fund raising!
Thanks to all of the first week donors and thanks especially to:
Jorge Sagastume
Wes Kandare
James Clay
Joe and Carrie Ruiz (offline)
and Lehi Judo Club (offline)

After a powerful weekend of very generous online and offline donations we have officially made it to just over 40% of the goal!

As a result I will be reducing the online total down to $2500 to reflect what was collected from the offline donations. Please keep liking and sharing on Facebook.

Thank you all so much! Please help keep the momentum going!
