I am currently pursuing my dream—to swim in the 2020 Summer Olympics in TOKYO!!
I do need a bit of your help, though, in getting there....

Hi there, my name is Faith Newkirk I am a competitive swimmer.

How long have I been swimming? Since I was six years old and living in Pittsburgh, PA. I then continued swimming in Doha, Qatar, where I lived for 12 years. While in Doha, I competed in local and international meets, winning medals at various levels.

I moved to New York October 2017 I swam at Asphalt Green Masters and worked there to support myself. I had an offer to moved to Maryland to train with Elite Rays.
Moved to Prince George County with not much money. Was homeless but through God’s divine connection I stay with a loving family.

I have worked 8 jobs to support myself and walked over 5miles to swim practice at Prince George Community College.
I still walk if I do not have a ride to where practice is located.

I currently have 4 jobs to support food, transportation, swim suits, swim gear, cost of swim meets, cost of living. etc.. My Jobs Take Time Away From Training. I am seeking your help to raise money so I can purely focus on Swimming and winning Gold.

I am determined to win gold not only for my glory but Gods Glory. I have been through tough times but I know that I will make it with Christ on my side.

“Swimming is not just a sport, it's a lifestyle, it's my superpower. I work with the water and allow it to communicate to me and I communicate back, we work as one.”
