UPDATE: Thank you so much to everyone that has donated and helped me reach my goal well ahead of schedule! It's touching to see how many people believe in me and want to see me reach my potential! As mentioned below, team fees are $18,300, so anything I can get above and beyond the original $9,000 goal is absolutely awesome, and will go to pay for my fees. Thanks again!
I'm 24 years old and have been a member of the Canadian Ski Team since 2007. I've been skiing since before I was two years old, and racing competitively since I was 8. Racing on the World Cup and at the Olympics has been my dream since before I was old enough to understand the significance of either event! In 2010 I won the Nor-Am Cup Overall & Super G titles, which granted me a spot in the World Cup for the following season.
I began racing on the World Cup tour in 2011, and achieved my first couple of Top 30 results last season, which was extremely exciting for me and has fueled my passion for the sport in a big way. I had another big first last season, racing at the 2013 World Championships in Schladming, AUT! After a really productive summer in the gym, I'm stronger and bigger than ever before and am really looking forward to a good preparation period on snow from now until the season begins in Sölden, AUT, on October 27th!
Since joining the Ski Team in 2007 there have always been Team Fees, but this year they are the highest yet at $18,300. All donations will go directly to pay my Team Fees. Every donation is very much appreciated and will help me along my journey to the World Cup podium and Olympics. To the right you can see the different donation levels and every bit helps!
I have some pretty sweet swag up for grabs to thank you, so you can not only support me, but display it with pride as well! Otherwise, please help me in spreading the message. Twitter, Facebook, word of mouth, carrier pidgeon, it all helps!
