The 2020 Olympic Games are just 10 months away, and I need your support to help me qualify and obtain a top 16 performance at the Games.
The next continental qualifier will be at the 2020 Miami Sailing World Cup in January and I will be pushing myself harder than ever before to obtain a country berth here. In order for me to qualify, I need to fundraise to be able to attend training camps leading up to the qualification event.
Once the country has qualified, I then need to be nominated to the Canadian Olympic Team by placing as the top female Canadian at the 2020 Worlds in Australia, and at the 2020 Princesa Sofia Regatta in Spain. These events are very expensive, and without your support I may not be able to secure my spot on the Olympic team.
Cost of the Trials:
I need your help! I need to raise a minimum of $8,000 before January 1 in order for me to attend the 2020 RSX Worlds in Sorrento, Australia. The funds will be going directly toward airfare, accommodation, event fees, coaching and rib rental.
See below a sample breakdown of how your donation can directly impact my performance in the Olympic trials:
$50 - cost of new batten and widget needed for the event
$100 - cost of accommodation for 1 night at the event
$500 - cost of airfare for equipment to arrive at event
$750 - cost of coaching per day at the event
$1400 - cost of airfare to the event
$2000 - cost of new sail needed for event
Total estimated cost of attending: $15,000.
Join my team today and help me achieve a successful performance at the 2020 Olympic Games.
