Fortunately for me I have been selected to race for Canada one more time this year at the Pan American Championships in Ponce City, Puerto Rico. This will be my fourth competition representing Canada and hopefully not my last! The intense competition I have faced as a member of Team Canada has opened my eyes and prepared me to aspire for a medal in Puerto Rico. Pan Ams are taking place from October 18th-20th of this year and I need some assistance getting there.
Unfortunately funding for Junior athletes in my sport is quite low. Canoe Kayak Canada partially funds these trips but a great chunk of it comes out of the athletes pockets. The cost of my trip will be upwards towards $2000. I currently have a part time job, but my hours are little to none and it is quite hard to balance work, school and being a full time athlete! ANY donations will go a long way and help me greatly in pursuing my dreams of continuing to race for Canada this fall and in the future! I have overcome many challenges in my short career but the greatest obstacle for an amateur athlete is the financial barrier.
Thank you in advance for all of your support!
