Young Bandon Athletes - BJJ World Championships

Donation protected
Hello friends, family, and BJJ enthusiasts,

We are Shane, Stuart, and Denas — three passionate Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) athletes hailing from Bandon, Ireland. Our dedication to the sport has paid off with numerous victories in European Championships, and we are now setting our sights on the global stage. We have the honour, skill, and determination to represent our hometown and club Studio Galera in the prestigious BJJ World Championships taking place in Abu Dhabi (2023) and the USA (2024).

However, the journey to world-class competitions comes with significant financial demands. Entry fees, travel, accommodation, and other expenses can quickly add up. As young athletes, we lack the necessary resources to cover these costs without some help.

That’s why we're reaching out to you, our community, for support. We need to raise €4000 to realise our dream of competing on the world stage. Every single contribution, no matter how small, will bring us one step closer to representing Bandon in these world-renowned tournaments.

Your contribution will not just help us compete at the highest level of BJJ, but also inspire the younger generation of athletes in Bandon and throughout Ireland. It is our dream to demonstrate that, with passion and dedication, anyone from anywhere - even a small town in Ireland - can stand tall on the world stage.

In return for your support, we promise to give our absolute best, not only in these championships but also in representing our town. We will keep everyone updated about our journey through regular posts and updates here and on our social media channels.

Thank you for considering a donation to our cause. We are grateful for any support you can provide, whether it's a financial contribution or simply sharing our campaign with others. Your generosity will play a vital part in our journey towards becoming BJJ World Champions.

Let's take Bandon to the world stage, together!

Yours in sport,
Shane, Stuart, and Denas
