Hey everyone! I hope everyone is getting excited for Chistmas - I sure am. I made the trip home today, and I could not be happier to be back up north surrounded by family. I am looking forward to a relaxing few days before heading to Florida for an intense week-long training camp after Christmas. I am so encouraged by my practices lately and I can't wait to get outdoors and ramp up the training before the indoor competitive season takes off the second weekend of January.
I have posted a few update videos on my campaign page. As you can see, the progress has been amazing so far, and we reached over 50% of my campaign goal on the very first day, and 100% of the campaign goal ($5000) on day four! With 55 days still to go, I am excited to make the most of this crowdfunding opportunity I have been given by Pursu.it. As stated in my campaign description, my athletic expenses for this season will total $6000. I set the campaign goal at $5000 because I really thought that even that would be a difficult goal to attain. The fact that we got there so soon is absolutely amazing, and I am totally blown away by the support! I hope to continue to get my story out there and potentially have my athletic expenses for this season completely covered! I already feel like such a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. To know that I won't have to worry about how I'm going to pay for my various competitions and training camps this season is an indescribable feeling. This allows me to focus 100% on what's most important - my training and my athletic progress.
You can check out my update videos under the "UPDATES" tab on my campaign page.
Thanks everyone for your continued support and encouragement! You have helped me so much not only financially, but you have all helped me get my story out there and ultimately, that is what is most important to me. If I can inspire just one young athlete, then I consider my story one of success.
