Help Send Heather to Worlds

Heather’s Going To Worlds!

If you’ve been with us for any length of time, you know what a big part of the dojo Heather is. She’s taught here forever, coached the Demo Team, Tournament Team, run Power Weekend and MUCH MORE. Certainly, without her, the dojo and all of us would be a little less.

A few weeks ago, Heather was asked to compete (in point sparring) at Worlds in October (it’s taking place in Italy this year). Competing on a large stage has been a goal of hers for years and so during the lockdown, she has been continuing to train on her own in the hopes that an opportunity like this arises. Balancing school, work and training have been challenging, but she’s persevered.

There are a lot of expenses that go with competing at this level including training camps that she has to attend as part of Team Canada, flight, hotel, food, fees and much more. Competing at this level is expensive as early estimates are up to $4500 (this covers ONLY her expenses), and so we’re coming to you and asking for a favour.

Given the current situation, fundraising is very difficult. We are trying to figure out ways to do it but if you would be willing to help her fund even part of her trip, it would be greatly appreciated.  Any amount helps!

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
