Help Disabled athlete Nick play beach Volleyball

Hi there! I've been lucky enough to be selected to represent Australia in ParaBeach Volleyball at the upcoming Beach World Series Open in Pingtan, China this coming May and I need your help getting there as it is completely self funded. What is ParaBeach Volleyball you ask? It's Beach Volleyball for people with a disability. Played with all the same rules as able bodied Beach Volleyball with the only exception being we have 3 players on our team instead of the normal 2. This will be my 5th international tournament representing Australia in Disabled Volleyball, starting as a 17 year old back at the Sydney 2000 Paralympic games in Indoor Volleyball. My most recent tournament (and first playing Beach internationally) was back in 2011 in Malaysia. I was given the opportunity to come out of retirement and play this tournament with the hope that ParaBeach Volleyball may get included in the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles. Now I'm not sure I'll be fit enough in 2028 but hopefully I can help get our sport included so the next generation of young volleyballers with a disability have something to aim for. Sadly the joys of being Disabled Athlete playing in a non Paralympic sport there is little or no funding available so that's why I'm trying this Go Fund Me page to help me out a bit. I'll be posting heaps of Pics on social media and keeping everyone updated on my progress before and during the tournament. Any donation is so appreciated and would help me get closer to my goal of playing for the country I love again.
