Help Support Ukrainian Figure Skater and Family

Hello everyone,

Vadym Kolesnik is a Ukrainian-born athlete who is now a team USA figure skater. Vadym left his home In Kharkiv, Ukraine, and moved to Novi, Michigan, when he was 14 years old to pursue athletic excellence in Ice dancing. For the last five years, his parents have supported his skating dreams from across the world. He is now the reigning Junior World Champion and is continuing to work hard to reach his skating goals. As Russia invades Ukraine, we see the disruption of peace and security for many. Vadym's immediate family resides in Kharkiv, Ukraine, a city that has been dramatically affected by the criminal acts of the Russian invasion. They have lost their business and hometown and cannot support Vadym. The Kolesniks need financial assistance to allow Vadym to continue to follow his skating dreams and provide some security in this time of catastrophe. Vadym continues to work various jobs to support himself, but the cost of living and training exceeds what he can make on his own. Together, we can help communities impacted by this devastating violence.

Please consider assisting Vadym and his family in surviving this crisis. We cannot express how much any donation will be appreciated, regardless of how big or small.
Thank you.
