Support Cristian's Dream

Cristian "Braian" Padilla is a 23 year old surfer from the Dominican Republic. He has dedicated over 9 years of hard work to his passion of competitive surfing. 

His dream is to compete and represent his country in the 2021 Olympic Games. Cristian has worked his whole life for this and cannot do it without your help.  Together we can make his dream a reality.

Anything you are able to contribute is greatly appreciated! Please pass this fundraiser along to family and friends! Every bit counts towards helping this young man reach his dream. 

Thank you very much!

While making a contribution through GoFundMe please pay special attention: the site will automatically take a 15% gratuity from your donation. It can be adjusted down to a fixed rate of $1. Doing so will increase your contribution towards our cause.

(Excess funds raised beyond actual expenses will be contributed to further youth surfing initiatives in Las Terrenas.)
