Special Olympics Basketball Funding
We are a Special Olympics basketball team from Mississauga, Ontario participating in the National Summer Games tournament to be held in Antigonish, Nova Scotia on July 30 - August 4, 2018. Our victories as the Mississauga Storm Team have allowed us to achieve great success. We previously won the Provincial tournament held in Guelph, Ontario. This accomplishment has provided us with the opportunity to represent our province in this tournament as Team Ontario. We have created this GoFundMe account with the hope of raising money for the registration fee, allowing our athletes to have the opportunity to be a part of this event as it is a very expensive, long journey for a team of 10 players to take part in and each support themselves financially. Each team member is a unique, hardworking and spirited individual with the drive and passion to train hard and to represent our province with great pride and honour. The funds that will be raised will be going towards the travel expenses, lodging and accommodations for each team member for this occasion. It would mean a great deal to our team if we were able to raise money to help fund our Special Olympics team in hopes to send us to Halifax this upcoming summer. The experience to represent Ontario in a national tournament is a once in a lifetime opportunity and the team members do not take this lightly. Any donations are greatly appreciated and donations $20.00 and over are tax deductible. Tax receipts are available upon request. Thank you so much for your time, donations and encouragement. We will make everyone proud representing Team Ontario in this upcoming national tournament. Thank you!
