I am taking unpaid leave from work during the months of May and June in order to pursue competition goals with Cycling Canada and meet criteria to represent Canada at 2015-16 events. In order to race world cup I must also earn enough points by travelling to compete in UCI races.

Events that I am training towards and hoping to qualify for are:
Sprint Camp I/UCI Sprint Race Series (June 10-27) - Trexlertown, US
Pan American Games (Jul 16-19) - Milton, Canada
Pan American Championships (Sept 1-6) – Santiago, Chile
World Cup #1 (Oct 30-Nov 1) - Cali, Colombia
World Cup #2 (Dec 5-6) – Cambridge, New Zealand
World Cup #3 (Jan16-17) – Hong Kong, China
World Championships (Mar 2-6) – London, England

As you may expect, this preparation is ultimately in lead up to the Summer Olympic Games to be held in Rio de Janeiro Brazil on Aug 5-21, 2016.

Using 'Go Fund Me' to self fund training and competition has enabled me to reach international level competition. Since age is a limiting factor to qualify for most training and support programmes, I have not qualified for any formal assistance to date.

Your help so far has helped achieve Provincial and Canadian National Track and Road Cycling Championship titles and meet Canadian National Team criteria.. all while maintaining full time employment.

Being able to focus for a period of time as a full time athlete, I know that there is potential for so much more given the chance.

I am truly grateful to you for your part in this journey and appreciate your company in progressing to the next level! This could not happen without your help. Let's go!

Any amount of support makes a difference.

Thank you colleagues at the City of Niagara Falls and Museums for supporting this big step. What a difference it has made! Within the first few days the extra focus has helped me make new personal best times, meet the national time standard and qualify to the athlete pool being considered for the upcoming Pan American Games!
