This year, after competing at the Australian BMX National Championships and receiving a 5A and 8A plate, Jacqui has been invited to compete at the 2017 UCI BMX World Championships in none other than the USA, Rock Hills, South Carolina!
We need your help to raise funds to get Jacqui and her support crew (her son Axel) over to the States to partake in what will be an amazing event.
Expecting 3000 participants this year, with 300 of those being professional athletes this is a once in a lifetime chance.
So please, do what you can and let's get Jacqui on her way!!
A bit more about Jacqui;
Mother of 3 healthy boys, Jacqui came to the NT in 1992 after spending her childhood on a sheep and barley farm in South Australia. As with most, the NT doesn’t let you go and Jacqui has been here ever since.
An outdoors person, Jacqui and her boys all love fishing, camping and rough and tumble sports.
It was 9 years ago that Jacqui’s son Axel signed up for BMX and after sitting on the sidelines for a year and not being part of the action Jacqui decided it was time to give it a go. And, she hasn’t looked back since.
Now competing in the Cruiser Class for 40+ Women, Jacqui has been giving it her all and loving it.
When the invitation arrived to partake in the World Championships it was like a dream come true! However, as with most sports, travelling comes with a cost and Jacqui being decidedly realistic declined the invitation due to the overwhelming cost.
We want to change that! As a collective group we want to support Jacqui and get her over to the states to show them that this pocket rocket (Jacqui is about 5” nothing...) from the NT means business and can mix it up with the best of them!
Going to the USA for Jacqui will be one of her greatest achievements in BMX competition. Personally it means she can show her boys that if you put the hard work in and set your mind to something it can happen – not matter what your age.
The money raised on this page will assist with airfares, accommodation, nomination fees, car hire just to name a few things.
We have 8 short weeks to make this dream become a reality, so please, do what you can, whether it’s $20 or $50 or $500 everything counts
