Support Reka/Hannan FIVB Expenses

We are Ivan Reka and Joel Hannan, two athletes currently training with the Canadian National Beach Volleyball team in Toronto. This summer we will be representing Canada, competing on the FIVB world tour, beginning our international careers. To start, we will be travelling to 2 world tour events at the end of April in Thailand and the Philippines where we will compete with some of the world's best players to acquire world tour points and experience which will help us earn berths into future world tour events.

Unfortunately, funding for beach volleyball in Canada is scarce and athletes must find their own ways to pay for almost all of their expenses when competing internationally. In addition, most international events take place outside North America so travel costs are high. Both of us must work on top of our full time training schedules, but the load makes it difficult to independently fund our travel costs.

Our travel expenses and living costs while overseas to compete at these two events currently sit at around $3000 combined. We ask you to help us begin our international careers by donating to help us with expenses.

We thank you from the bottom of our sandy hearts for your support!
