My sister has been working extremly hard for herself but mainly  to set a great example for her younger siblings, not only for myself but for our younger brother and sister, Kyle and Ryan Castlin.

Our father was murdered December 11, 2000. We did not let that hold us back from being great human beings and striving for the best that we could be. My brother and sister are not able to travel to Rio due to school obligations, but it would bring me great joy to travel to support her.

 As a recent college graduate of Albany State University, with the intent to get a masters & one day be a head coach, I am still transitioning. I have several student loans & the demands of being a recent graduate on the job search so my funds are extrmely low. 

This is a once in a liftime opportunity for me & I feel in my heart that I wouldn't just be a representation for myself but for my syblings and our father. 

Budget
Flight - $3,500
Hotel - $1,500
Games Tickets- $1000
Meals - $500

Anything you can donate will be VERY HELPFUL! My sister will be bringing back signed memorabilia from the games for some of our contributors!!! 

Thank you so much!

Rodney, I new your grandfather Eugene when he worked with my mom, Benny, at NAWCAS. And on several occasions had the chance to meet/play with the "Castlin kids" at the office parties when we were very young. With much love to your family, wishing you and your sister all the success in Rio!! -Sara Ochs Cherry
