We are Lorraine McNamara and Quinn Carpenter, two figure skaters with a passion for Ice Dance and a desire to share our love of our sport with as many people around the world as we can. We are asking for your help as we work towards our dream of bringing home Olympic Gold for the United States.


We have been skating together for ten years and are the reigning U.S. National Champions at the Junior level of Ice Dance. After earning the gold medal at the 2016 World Junior Figure Skating Championships in March, we are ranked 1st in the world. We've also placed 1st at all of our Junior Grand Prix events since the start of our 2015 season.

After starting this season strong with two 1st place performances in Ostrava, we need your help more than ever!

In order to make our dream a reality, we must be committed to our sport in every way possible and bring our training to new levels. Our practice regimen must continue to expand, both on and off the ice. This will add a greater financial burden to what is already a very expensive sport. We are both very fortunate to have supportive families who do everything possible to help us achieve our goals. Our dedication is unlimited, and our families will continue to do all that they can, but now we need your help to reach the next level.

Our goal for this competitive season is to raise $20,000 of community support. Any funding we receive will go towards costumes, skates, coaching fees, and ice time fees. With the demand for more intensive training, these expenses grow each year. With your kindness and generosity, you can be part of our success and make this goal a reality!

Thank you sincerely for your time and support and please share this with your friends and family.

All the best,

Lorraine and Quinn

The beginning of the competitive season is always an exciting time for us – new music and choreography, new costumes, and new goals. Having just returned from another gold medal trip at our first JGP of the year, we want to thank everyone once again for their amazing support! We are really enjoying our new programs and working hard to make them better every day.

With just two weeks until we compete next at JGP Slovenia, we're reaching out again to all of our supporters to help us keep improving. After Slovenia, we will have our sights set on the JGP Final in Marseille, France. Your support now will give us the momentum we need for our best season ever!

As always, please share our campaign with friends and family, and together we'll achieve our dreams!

Thanks again for all your support!
