USAW Nationals and World Olympic Trials!

Dear Friends and Family,

As most of you may know I have been working hard toward a lifelong dream and goal to one day make it to the Olympics. Some of you have seen the sweat, anger, joy and triumphant personal record dances! And some of you send love and support from a far. With all of the dedication and drive I have put in to one day reach that goal, the time is finally here and I need your help! 

I have qualified for the USAW Nationals (July 17-20, 2014 in Salt Lake City Utah) which in turn will qualify me to compete in the  World Championship Olympic Trials (November 4-16 in Almaty, Kazakhstan) for 2014!

Here is how qualifying for Team USA works. I have to compete in four mandatory competitions to qualify for the USA Weightlifting Team. Two in 2014 and two in 2015.  The above goal amount is to help with training, room, and travel expenses for both competitions for the 2014 year. Any unused donations for expenses left over from 2014 will be used towards the 2015 year.

I would be forever greatful to any donation big or small. Please help and join me in my journey to the Olympics!
