These girls have participated together since 3rd grade and have worked very hard this year to secure a spot for their team at globals, in this very difficult middle-age category. They are proud of their accomplishment and excited to compete. This Go Fund Me campaign is intended to subsidize the registration costs, estimated at upward of 5k, not including travel and accommodations to KC.
Please consider supporting the team by contributing monetarily and also by sharing the fundraising campaign with your network. Participation in this program has already proven to teach these girls teamwork, confidence and accountability. The future benefit to their skill building is seemingly limitless and they are all genuinely grateful for the opportunities DI offers them.
