Help Send PX to Worlds!

$3,370 of $3,350 goal

Raised by 42 people in 7 months
Hi everyone! My name is Peixian Rong, most people known me as PX. I am from Seattle, Washington. I am a senior at Franklin High School. I’ve recently been selected as one of the 24 female athletes across the country to represent USA at the U20 Junior World Ultimate Championship.


I started to play Ultimate Frisbee when I was in 7th grade at Asa Mercer Middle School. I was also very fortunate to be able to play for club teams Fryz, 7 Hills and 4 years of YCC on the girls & mixed division. I fell in love with the sport because the combination of competitiveness and the spirit of the game makes the game so intense yet friendly. I have helped coach Asa Mercer Middle School's 6th grade team. I am also involved with  AGE UP, which is an non-profit organization empowering young women of color in South Seattle and give more resources for the players; one of our goal is to raise more money for south end Frisbee coaches (who does not get paid very much).  The community has shaped me into the person I am today, I could not get here without all the support from my lovely coaches and teammates.


It has always been a goal of mine to participate in Junior Worlds. Although I am overjoyed about being selected for the team, the cost is a huge barrier for me. Coming from South Seattle, money has always hindered many south end player’s opportunities - including mine. I don’t want money to be the reason of me missing out on opportunities. This year's Junior World Ultimate Championships will be held in Waterloo, Ontario Canada. The amount it would cost me to get me there is about $3350. Other than using GoFundMe as a platform to raise money, I will also be doing bake sales/selling some of my belongings to help reach my goal. Any donation big or small will be a huge help. Even if you are not able to donate, I would appreciate it if you could share this post!


Thank you all so so much,
Peixian Rong

Hey everyone! Thank you so much to those who have donated or shared the link. If you are wondering why I have raised my goal to $3,350, it is due to the following reasons:

1) I checked the cost of a roundtrip airplane ticket and found out the expense of that was more than my previous estimated amount.
2) I previously thought GoFundMe only takes out 3% of the funds I have raised. Unfortunately, I recently learned GoFundMe takes a lot more.
The above are the reasons why I have raised my goal.

Once again, thank you so so so so much to everyone who has contributed. I know it might sound cheesy and all but words cannot describe how thankful I am. Thank you for supporting and making this possible for me. I have been reading all the comments and it's super heartwarming <3 Thank you!
