Over the past few weeks i have had a crowd-funding campaign running on www.makeachamp.com and we have now entered the last week of this. I am attempting to raise as much of the £12,000 that it will cost for me to get to and compete in the World Championships in Vail, Colorado 2015.
In order to compete against the top athletes in my sport I must stay in peak physical condition and spend over 10 months of the year travelling between training and racing venues. This means trying to build a world class programme with the little financial support we have here in the UK for skiers, and this does not come cheap. Therefore, I need to raise the necessary funds, via sponsorship, to finance my training, coaching and travel expenses (to name a few) to be able to continue training with my team all year round, and more importantly make it out to the World Championships in Vail, Colorado next year.
I have been over whelmed with all of the support and donations so far and you are all helping to make my dream a reality.
