World U23 Championships ~ Finland 2021

Hello! I'm Hannah Mehain, a competitive cross country skier living in Vernon, B.C and racing for Sovereign Lake Nordic Club.  I am also a university student in my 4th year microbiology at UBC Okanagan.

I have just made the Canadian Team for World Jr/U23 Championships in Vuokatti, Finland!  I am very excited to have the opportunity to race internationally this year!  It has been especially challenging this year to remain focused on training as all races and most training camps in Canada have been cancelled. 

Although this incredible experience will be very valuable and worthwhile, it is not cheap!  It costs a total of $3000 to be able to attend.  Special thanks to Cross-Country BC for covering half the cost! I am aiming to raise $1500 by the end of January to be able to go on the trip!

As a student-athlete, time is tight!  Nearly all my time is spent either studying, ski training, making food or traveling.  Although, I do work part-time in the summer, it is not enough to cover all school and competition expenses.  

Thank you for your incredible support, allowing me to represent our Country!
