Help JR racers make first intl comp

The SAYULITA JR SUP team "elite squad" is gearing up to take our first international trip to compete and represent Mexico on the worlds biggest racing stage at the  Pacific Paddle Games (PPG) 2017  in Southern California at the end of September of this year. This event has been the game-changer of countless athletes, but to these kids it would be an experience that will change their lives forever.
The Sayulita JR SUP Team has grown from the ground up from a small local team of 7, to an ever growing family of 60+. All kids are accepted, no matter their skill level or financial circumstances. Expenses are covered by cooperative fundraising. They work hard on and off the water, and have become not only amazing athletes- but stewarts of community envolvement & improvement. It is a program designed to unite the youth of Sayulita in a structured and healthy way, and hopefully create the future national SUP team for Mexico.  

After two full years of putting in endless hours of work, keeping their grades up, and being active in our community- they are ready to take the next and biggest step yet: Racing against the best youth SUP racers in the world, in front of the heroes they have been studying, and testing their skills at a level they havent yet experienced. 

To make this trip happen, there are many things that we need to cover:
- Racers airfare
- Food
- Entry Fees
- Car rentals
We have a place to stay, an RV to use for some extra sleeping space, our equipment covered, uniforms, support of local families and sponsors, and all the training heart and passion! But we really need the help to reach all trip expenses, now more then ever, to make it happen. Any and all contributions will be hugely appreciated!
