Hi everyone.. As you know, I'm working on trying to be on the Canadian National Womens Dragon Boat team to compete in Worlds next year in Hungary. There are 17 spots left out of 24 to fill.. and the final pick for the roster is in May. I'm competing with about 40 women total. While working hard is a big factor to making it on the team, the other factor is being able to pay for the costs that will be incurred. My training and paddling has always come from my own pocket.. but to be on the National team will require extra funds.

Prior to the final roster selection, I will be incurring costs for extra training, trips to Montreal for testing (this is where the head coach resides) and a trip to Myrtle Beach for a week long training camp in April (lodging, plane ticket, food and training programme..).
If I do make the team, i'll also have to fund my way to Hungary to compete (lodging, plane ticket, food, team uniform and etc..)

I know most people have always wanted to help me achieve my dreams and I thought I'd set this up as a way for you to help me offset some of my costs. Any donation big or small is welcomed and will be very much appreciated. :)

PS: Any leftover donation money will be donated to Right to Play Canada. Right To Play is a global organization that uses the transformative power of play - playing sports, playing games - to educate and empower children facing adversity. It seems only right to encourage children to play and indulge in their favourite sport :)
