My name is Michelle Young and I am a track and field athlete from Saskatoon. I have already qualified for the FISU Games this coming summer, which is a major stepping-stone towards the Olympic games in Rio in 2016 and Tokyo in 2020.

In order for this to become a reality I will be attending a number of track & field meets across Canada and the United States to compete against higher-level competition, which is not available locally. I am also going to be attending a few national team training camps to work with the national hurdle coach. As with everything, the preparation for and participation in these events have price tags, including the costs of training, travel, accommodations and entry fees, and creates a situation where a large financial burden falls on the athlete.

These meets and training camps are a necessary component of my preparation and qualification for these major championships, and I generally count on the support of my family and friends to help cover the costs of these trips. Although I do receive some provincial funding and work part-time, it does not come close to covering my costs, and therefore am seeking additional help to offset some of these expenses and would be extremely grateful for any support you could provide.
