Chase Kalisz has qualified to represent the USA in the 400 IM in the 2016 Summer Olymipc Games in Rio. This is a dream come true for Chase and his family. He has worked almost his entire life for this opportunity.
I am looking to help defray the cost of the trip to Rio for Chase's mother so that she can be there to share this experience with him. Did you know that family members are responsible for paying their own way to watch their Olympian, and that the cost of a trip to Rio is so much that Chase's mom is planning to watch from home?? I did not know this until very recently and it is why I started this fundraising campaign.
Having watched closely as my aunt has dedicated her life to supporting her children and their dreams, I know you will agree that she needs to be there.
