But money's tight, and Nationals aren't cheap.
So I asked her dad, Eli, what it might all end up costing, and when he said, "$4000," it got me thinking: "I've got a little over 2000 friends. If just 400 of us got together and gave $10 each, we could raise that money in NO TIME and help Zaya get to Nationals!!"
So far this year, she's already got the #1 times in the 100m, 200m, and 400m (12.34s, 25.67s, 58.76s, respectively). If we can take the money part out of the equation, then all she has to worry about is training between now and then.
Who's with me? Let's get Zaya to Nationals!
*$4000 includes: van rental for the week, tent and supplies, lodgings, gas, food, drinks, etc...
