Hi, we're Team Osom (2x4 Roller Derby), we're a team from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since our first trip to USA we've been going up the rankings until we achieved the great honor of reaching number 12 worldwide. But this road doesn't end there: today our goals are bigger than ever since we want to get to the top 10 and make it to championships, but to accomplish this thing we need your help. We want to embark ourselves on our 6th international trip.
The economic conditions of our country are well known. Argentina is going through the deepest economic crisis in recent years and given that we are so far away, each trip is getting even more expensive and difficult than the previous one. This makes it difficult to maintain our position in the ranking and play the required games. We are a group of athletes who carry out projects and campaigns throughout the year, raising funds to afford food and transportation expenses for our players.
Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to get sponsors to support us or give us a proper space to carry out our training sessions. We train in a public court under a highway overpass, with no bathrooms, no changing rooms or lockers, no water, no proper lighting and since it doesn't have walls, it's being constantly affected by weather conditions. Our objectives are clear and they motivate us to face and conquer all adversities that we come accross.
We are focused, full of motivation, determination, commitment and dreams. But we're short of money! So we're asking you one more time to help us on our way to make our biggest dream ever come true!
