Help Donavyn get to Summer Nationals

Hi my name is Donavyn, I am 10 years old and I love the sport of Fencing. When I was 5 years old I became a fan of Star Wars. I wanted to learn how to use a lightsaber like the ones in the movies. My dad then took me to my first fencing class. No lightsaber's, but I got to play with a sword. This was my introduction to the sport of fencing. By the age of 8, with good training I began competing within California. For the 2[phone redacted] season, I have attended 4 tournaments within California, overall as of now for the 10year old Boys Foil I am placing within the top 5, and for the 12year old Boys Foil I am placing within the top 16. Fencing is fun, and I always look forward to going to practice which is three times a week.


I would be excited to be part of the USA Fencing in July's: 2014 Summer Nationals held in Ohio. I have never traveled outside of California, and I've never been on a airplane before. Having the opportunity to fence and meet other fencers from across the US would be awesome!

This school year so far he has been recognized with Honor Roll & Merit List standings, and currently holds a 3.2 GPA. He is currently the Student Body Vice President for his school, and attends Leadership classes, along with a GATE class. Donavyn enjoys helping out with Safety Patrol and Reading Buddies.

We think that attending Summer National's would be a great opportunity for him. As Donavyn told us, "nothing's impossible", "there's a way". He researched, asked questions, and has set his goal to attend the USA Fencing Summer Nationals.
