Kayaking has been a part of my life since I was born. It runs in my family and through my blood. Ever since I was a young boy I have dreamed of going to the Olympics and winning a gold medal. That is why I have dedicated my life to fullfill this dream. I have put many other important things in my life on hold with the hopes of making it big in the sport I love and step-by-step I am getting closer to reaching my goals. With a successful season behind me, (click here to see my acheivments in 2014) I am ready to start preparing for my shot at being on the Olympic team for Rio 2016. It hasn't been an easy road to get where I am today and I know there will always be obstacles ahead of me. I've faced disappointment many times in my career but my recent success has given me reassurance in my training and confidence towards my future. My story is very complex and seems to get more intereseting with every experience. If you would like to read my entire story please click here.
Welcome to My Rally Campaign
First of all, thank you for taking the time to check out my rally. Without people like you, athletes such as myself would struggle even more trying to make ends meet. I have created this page for a reason and that reason is simple. I want to go to compete at the Olympic Games in Rio but I can't do it alone. Being an elite level athlete is not always easy and especially in a smaller, less popular sport like mine. Traveling and competing around the world every year can be very costly and the financial support for many USA athletes is very limited. This is why we need you. Every dollar you donate will help me get closer to fulfilling my dreams.
Why I'm Raising Funds
This upcoming season I am looking to spend over $12,000 in expenses such as travel, training, competitions, equipment, and other essentials. However, with the help of my sponsors I am able to bring that number down. That is why my fundraising goal is only $6,000.
If I'm able to reach this goal then my 2015 season will be a breeze as I'll be able to focus on what I do best, kayaking. Your help will be tremendous and I'm very thankful for every penny you decide to contribute.
