Road to the Olympics

Dear Friends:  

I am thankful the Lord has given me many abilities to use for him.   He has also given me a wonderful support system of people throughout my entire life.   Many have been cheering me on from my days in junior high track and soccer.   Although I have dreams of being in the Olympics for track and field, the U.S. bobsled coaching staff has opened another door for me.  There is no doubt that this is another opportunity the lord has given me.

I have spent many hours already practicing at the Olympic Training Center here in Lake Placid, New York. I have had the opportunity to train and learn along side the best in the world. There is much more to learn in this sport as the season begins. I am currently still responsible for the funding of my transportation, lodging, meals, and accommodations as I travel for competition. This is where I need your help and partnership as I continue to pursue this dream of competing on the US Olympic bobsled team.    I have the opportunity to compete this season on the North American Cup tour (NAC), which consists of 4 races. Each race will be in a different location, which requires a lot of traveling, time and money. Athletes have to self-fund their trips, which can get very expensive when you’re not receiving a dime and giving up a day-to-day job. So I am reaching out to you in hopes that you are willing and able to help me kick off my rookie season as a USA bobsledder in any way financially possible. Every donation helps me get to the steps and races needed to be apart of the US bobsled team. This is real and exciting!!24758604_15089406020_r.jpeg
