Jessy to Race @ ITU World Duathlon


My name is Jessy Déroneth and I am a movement junkie.

I guess I always have been.



But after years of dance, martial arts and weight training, I wanted a bit more of a challenge, so I joined my local triathlon club. I focused on running and cycling, and now I can say that I’ve participated in many running races and duathlons.

As things turned out, I ended up being pretty good. In fact, I  had quite a few good results, placing several times in the top 3 for my age category.  

(You can view some of my results here ): 




My coaches and the other triathletes have been a great source of inspiration and encouragement. This year, they suggested that I try qualifying for the annual International Triathlon Union (ITU) 2018 World Championship in Denmark in July.

It took a lot of hard work, and many long, long, LONG training sessions... but I DID qualify to represent Canada for my age category in the Duathlon !!!

This is a prestigious race, and I am honoured to have the chance to participate.

Now, the competition is fully self-funded, but the costs are beyond my personal budget. This is why I am asking for help to raise the money I will need in order to compete.

The total amount that I would like to raise is: $6500.

Here are some of the costs associated with the race (which can be verified here ): 

Triathlon Canada Management Fee (mandatory)
~ $150-200  by November 14th

Race fees (mandatory)~ $200-700 

Mandatory Team Canada Uniform (jacket, race uniform, shirt and bottoms)~ $425  due by March

Team Canada Hotel ~ $150-250/night  to be booked by January (the event is a week long from July 4th to the 16th).

Team Canada Social Activities ~ $100
Scheduled in the spring prior to the event.

Return airplane tickets to Denmark  ~ $1000 (if I book it soon enough!)

I have also summarized additional costs associated with sport logistics, such as the costs for the bike (parts, assembly, tuning, and new wheels if budget permits) ~ $500-1500

Thank you for visiting my page. I’m very excited about this venture, and any help is ever so much appreciated!!!

Yours truly, 
Jessy
