Hello my name is Keenan Howell. I am 13 years old and my only goal in life is to become an Olympic athlete.
I know that I have what it takes to compete on an international level and succeed, in spite of my ADHD. Unfortunately, skill is not the only requirement for success. I am the youngest of four siblings (one of whom has autism). My family has sacrificed deeply to get me this far, but now that I need to train with the Junior National Team at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs Colorado (I live on the Central Coast of California) travel and hotel fees are piling up. My family has maxed out everything. I want and need to go the distance to represent the United Stated of America and compete in the 2024 Olympics. My family and I would be so grateful for any support possible.
I realize $150k is a whole lot of money, but I hope to see the funding trickle in over the next seven years. As my skill level grows, the expenses become greater. My parents will be expected to fund my travels to at least one world competition each year and for anyone who is a world traveler, you know how ridiculously expensive it can be.
Any and all donations will go directly to travel, hotel expenses, team fees, competition fees and trampoline shoes (I go through a lot of these).
See you at the Olympic games of 2024. Go team USA! I will do you proud!
