Help An Athlete Become World Champion

$595 of $5,650 goal

Raised by 6 people in 55 months
I am a member of the Canadian National Slalom and Freestyle Canoe/Kayak Team.
In the last few years I have competed in many locations around the world, such as Mexico, Europe, Australia, and all around the United States and Canada.
I was named Canadian Junior National champion in 3 different categories in the last year, and am top 20 in the world for freestyle and top 30 for slalom!

My next big competitions will be the Freestyle World Cup Tour in Europe this summer. This year's tour consists of 3 different events in three seperate locations across France and Spain.
I am super excited and looking forward to yet again represent Canada at such a high level competition but the challenges to get there are many.

Daily training combined with school and part time work fill my weeks and still the cost involved with getting there and living in Europe for a month looms over me. I might also be attending university in September which isn't going to help with the bills!
International competition and travel is a rewarding experience but puts a significant financial burden on myself and other athletes.
I started my own business a few years ago to help cover the costs, and my parents are saviors! But even with all that my trip to worlds in Australia in April made it hard to pay for training and smaller competitions afterwards.
So I ask you, PLEASE donate and help me to continue pursuing my athletic goals; With your help I will be able to continue to improve my international ranking and work towards my ultimate goal: A place on the next Olympic Team and a future Olympic medal.

Thank you for reading this!
