Sam's World Championship Dream
As the night dwindles down I'm laying here reflecting on overwhelming amount of support I have received in such a short amount of time. $830 in ONE DAY!! I never imagined I would have this much support and I am truly grateful for everyone's donations. As I said before, ANYTHING helps, but I want to give a special thank you for those who donated $100 a peice. Kristine Greenfield, Karen Kroll, Michael Raterman, and Bob Sunday. You can spend $100 on a lot of things, yet these individuals chose to spend it on me. Thank you.
I've just opened a new bank account to hold money specifically for Worlds. I am also in the process of making t-shirts with spots on the back for logos to sell to sponsors and then a "I helped send Sam Kroll to PRAGUE" on the front for people to buy! Not sure on prices and colors yet, but please let me know if you are interested. I am hoping to be taking orders by next week! I truly appreciate all the support!
Today, after winning the teen divisions in the 63kg weight class at the 2015 USAPL Men's & Women's Championships in San Antonio, Texas I have been selected to be a part of Team USA as we compete in the 2015 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic at the end of this summer. This is an absolutely HUGE and amazing opportunity for me that I have dreamed about since my freshman year when my coaches said I would be the next North athlete to qualify for Worlds. At this meet today, my dream came true. But I still need your help! This will be a very expensive trip and I would be forever grateful for any help you would be able to give me! ANYTHING will help. A GoFundMe account has been started my my stepmom, Robin Sunday Shafer. Please donate, like and share to keep spreading the word! And thank you so much!
