Olympic Bobsleigh Dream

As many of you already know, becoming a part of Team Canada Bobsleigh has been a focus of mine over the last several years. I am excited to say that after years of training and try outs, I have been invited to train and compete with the Ontario Bobsleigh team this season. This experience will bring me closer to hopefully making the national team in the coming years and eventually competing in the 2022 Winter Olympics as a part of Team Canada.

Although I am not entirely comfortable with reaching out like this, I was encouraged to do so by some of my friends. The costs of travel, training fees and accommodations are not included in the opportunity I have been given. The training camps and competitions also require unpaid time away from my work as a self employed personal trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach at the University of Toronto. As you can imagine the financial burden in pursuing this dream is high. I am humbly asking you to consider helping me out. A donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated.
