My name is Ruby Tetrick. I am 14 years old and live in Colchester, Vermont. I am a high honor roll student, and am captain of my middle school soccer team. I have been very passionate about soccer from a young age. I started in kindergarten, playing recreational soccer, and have been playing ever since. At 11 years old, I joined a popular year-round soccer club here in our area. For the past two years I have been striving to play at the premier level. Through all my hard work and dedication for these past years, I have finally earned a spot on a premier team!
My premier soccer team is taking an intensive soccer training trip to Holland in the spring of 2015, one of the places I have always dreamed of going and I have always admired the style of soccer in this country. This trip is very expensive and something my family just cannot afford. I'm doing the best I can to raise money by babysitting, raking leaves, cleaning houses, and doing bottle drives, but I need your help. This trip would mean the world to me, as I'm hoping to go to college on either an academic or an athletic scholarship. This trip would be very beneficial to my development not only as a soccer player, but as a person.
My goal is to raise $3,500 by the deadline of November 1st, which would allow me to make initial trip downpayments and also purchase the extra required soccer gear that I will need.
I would greatly appreciate your support, as every donation helps. Thank you so much for considering to donate to me!
