Red Bull Crashed Ice USA Support

$625 of $10k goal

Raised by 16 people in 32 months
I have been attempting to compete in the extreme sporting event of Red Bull Crashed Ice, on and off since 2007, since I first heard about it. My life has taken me to so many places around the world that it made it difficult to train for the sport. Finally, this year I decided to not let my travels and life stop me from reaching my dream. I traveled to 3 cities across the U.S. (Buffalo, NY, Chicago, IL and St. Paul, MN.) by train, bus, cab and walking to tryout on-ice. I got to the point that I was 0.12 seconds away form qualifying to represent the USA. Fortunately, Red Bull offered a new way to qualify this year and that is by submitting an online video demonstrating my skills and reason to compete. Here is the YouTube link ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woVQLpzzveY). My best friend passed away from leukemia at the age of 26, Emre. Watching him fight for his life made me aware that I must daily fight for my own and to enjoy it to the fullest. My goal is to spread HOPE and inspiration to many around the world. Competing in this sport as a medical student is also difficult because I must complete my studies at the same time while training for a near Olympic event. Please help me cover these costs and any additional money will be donated to charity! If you would like your name or a name of a loved-one fighting for their life on my equipment, then let me know! Last year the event was televised on NBC and this year on FoxSports1, RedBull.tv and Apple TV! Thank you and looking forward to your support!
