Raised by 85 people in 24 months
Well, it's that time again! I have been called up to the United States Deaf Men's National soccer team for my third Deaf World Cup to take place in Salerno, Italy this summer from June 17-July 3.

I am truly honored for the opportunity to represent my country playing the sport I love, there is nothing like putting on the red, white, and blue with my teammates who have shared many similar life experiences of being hearing impaired.

Due to minimal bureaucratic support, we are each tasked to raise $5,500 in order to compete at the highest level. Many countries fully fund their teams, and in some cases, even offering performance based bonuses. Thanks to incredible support from many friends and family, we haven't been deterred by our financial disadvantage in the past and I really appreciate your support as we take on our goal of medalling out of 16 teams there this summer! Check out the link below for more information on our team!

Any amount of support helps, and donations are tax deductible! Be on the lookout for articles and a (fun!)draising event held sometime this spring (this will also involve a silent auction, so items for that would be greatly appreciated as well!). Many thanks and go USA!

UPDATE: I HAVE REACHED MY GOAL! Thanks to two very generous donations, I have gone above my initial goal and now am also able to travel to Dallas the last weekend of April for a training camp with the team! The remainder of funds raised will be allocated to the general team fund to help my teammates! Thanks so much to everyone, the support is absolutely incredible and I am working my hardest to bring back a medal for Team USA!!
