Help Kevin Get To US Indoor Nationals

My name is Kevin A. Mays II, a recent Central Michigan University Graduate student-athlete, following graduation I decided to dedicate myself to the sport of track and field, specifically the 35-lb weight and the hammer throw and my goal is to continue to compete at a high level. I've always dreamed of being a professional athlete and this may be my breakthrough opportunity.

 

The 2013 USA Indoor Track and Field National Championships will be held March 1st through March 3rd, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Without the support of endorsements, scholarships, grants, I will have to fund this out-of-pocket which would be literally impossible for me to do at this time. So my plea to you is a sponsorship that will assist me with the opportunity to compete in this event.

 

Dependent on your donation, I will be provided with traveling expenses, living expenses, and a structured per diem for day-to-day expenses, competition fees, and competition equipment. These are the few things needed in order for an athlete to be successful over the course of competition. Lastly, i'd like to thank you for your time and donation!


Sincerely,


Kevin A. Mays II
