Going for the Gold WITH DEVON ALLEN
$8,018 of $8,000 goal
Hi Everyone! I'm Devon Allens' mom and im trying to go to Rio to see him bring home a GOLD MEDAL. His sister Carissa and I are trying to go, but I don't know if she will be able to go. I have done some pricing and here is how to breaks down: Airfare- 1900.00(if carissa is able to go, this will be airfare x 2) Lodging- 1240.00 for 3 nights. Approx 300.00 per day for event tickets (900.00) total Transportation is a $50.00 a day, my travel agent suggested the transit pass. Food $100.00 a day for 3 days. There may be other incidentals I haven't figured in... I've never traveled internationally before so I may be naive about how much things cost. But im thinking maybe $6000.00 May do the trick. I'm so proud of my son, for his faith and perseverance in staying steadfast and true to his goals and staying on track . He is my inspiration for so many things I'm working on in my own life. He and his twin sister are the best things that have ever happened to me!!!! And if I have to do this alone I will!! Wish me luck ! Thank you in advance and GOD BLESS !!!

Hello, I didn't know you had the go fund me account set up. I just happen to scan for it and wanted to contribute but I see that the donations aren't being accepted anymore. I believe the cost may be a little more than 8,000 dollars since I have been there quite a few times. You should open it up and raise the limit to 10,000 dollars if you can.
I (and all Ducks) are very proud to call Devon one of our own. What a fantastic representative of the University of Oregon. We will all be cheering for him. The best of luck and thank you for choosing Oregon.
