      HOW WOULD A $5,000 CHAMPIONS FUND GRANT HELP YOU OR YOUR ORGANIZATION ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS IN SPORT?

      We have a fabulous team of women that are the next generation of Olympians that need our attention now so that they can achieve their dream for the 2022 & 2026 Games. These role model superstars deserve the maximum support to help make this happen & inspire young women that anything is possible!

      WHAT FINANCIAL CHALLENGES AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO TAKE PART IN SPORT
      OR YOUR ORGANIZATION?

      NSOs depend on government & corporate funding which is a challenge to secure with so many deserving athletes. While our Wmn hold performances that inspire many, it is difficult to secure the dollars needed to get them to that top step on the podium. A sad reality as our podium pathway in xc is long.

      WHAT BOUNDARIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO OVERCOME OR SEE OVERCOME FOR WOMEN IN SPORT?

      Create a universal sense of safety and well-being in sport for women, where there is freedom to express yourself, no matter what level or performance. It's about achieve goals, dreaming that anything is possible thru healthy habits and activity.

      SPORTS ARE IMPORTANT TO ME BECAUSE…

      Sports means a time to play, to have fun, to let go, for all ages and abilities, for any goal, big and small. It brings people together, a sense of pride in achieving a better you, your inner champion, whatever that means.There is no better way to embrace life, friendship & health. Sport fuels life!
