Send girls to Pan-Am/European Judo Games

Sisters, Erica (age 12) and Christina (age 11) Paccione, began practicing the Olympic sport of Judo at the age of 4. They are both ranked #1 in the country and were invited to participate as a member of USA's Judo Team at the Pan American Judo Championships in El Salvador and the European Team in either Belgium or France this November.

The sisters have won multiple State and National Championships and have been consistently ranked through USA Judo. This year alone they both were Gold medalists at the following major events: Cherry Blossom Open, National point tournament in Delray Beach, FL; Judo Scholastics in Miami; USA Judo Junior Olympics in Texas and at the USJA/USJF Junior Nationals in Pittsburgh.

The goal of the sisters is to attend both events and to bring home another Gold medal each and to gain further knowledge and training. They have their dream of making the 2020 Olympics.

They are asking for your help to bring home the Gold medals. Please consider helping them in any way you can. Even $5 helps! The funds collected will go towards entry fees, travel and hotel.

Thank you!!!
