My Cool Dream
How you can help get me to the 2022 Winter Paralympics
In order to qualify for the 2022 Winter Paralympics, I have 6 World Championships to attend over the next six months, located in Canada, USA, Austria and Switzerland. In addition I will be travelling to Sydney in September for the first national training camp.
I receive no funding from the Australian Government and will mostly be competing through donations, sponsorship and my own expense. I have until the end of October to raise $15,000 in initial funding to help me compete in the World Championships.
To raise funds, I will be completing a sponsored 24 hour triathlon. (Click to Donate).
By sponsoring me, you will help Australia’s first ever para-bobsled team make history for our country. My costs include everything from food to uniforms, care costs and travel. For example, the race suits I require cost $2,000 each and my helmet is close to $1000.
