World Championship Fundraiser!
First of all- thanks for visiting!!
This past summer was incredible for me as an athlete. I worked extremely hard, which culminated in my taking a spot on the Team USA 2012 World Championship Triathlon team. This means I’ve earned the opportunity to represent the United States at the Age Group World Championships next year in Auckland, New Zealand. This will require even more training, hard work and determination to get to my best fitness level ever. Having been on a National team previously (Jr. National Sprint Kayak team), I know this will not only take dedication but as much support from friends, family and sponsors as possible.
This is especially true now. Two weeks ago my brand new 2011 Trek Madone 4.7 racing bicycle was stolen. This is an incredible blow; not only was I very attached to that bike but it was the biggest financial investment I had made in the sport. In combination with the expenses of getting to World Championships in New Zealand, I realize I need to ask for some help. I’m writing to ask if you would consider becoming a partner to help me raise money to replace my bike. I am a spin instructor at a local gym in Cambridge, MA, which has offered me space to conduct “Spin-a-thon and Beyond – a fundraiser for the Tiny Tri-er” (me!). This is a huge effort to raise as much as I can to help allay the huge costs of a new bike and travel to Worlds. The spin-a-thon will hopefully take place on 11-11-11 at 7pm (the gym closes before 11pm ) . With enough interest, I’ll add a class at 8pm!
Here is the sign up AND the donations page:
Remember, Spin-a-thon sign-up will be open to general donations for anyone not able or not interested in a spin class. Please consider either!
I will have much more information to add, Of course all denominations will be welcome! but if you enter above the minimum, you get to enter a super sweet raffle too!
