Fundraiser Goal update

So excited to share that my fundraiser goal is $100 away from being met. This means I'm going to the Deaflympics for sure. Head over to gofund me to acknowledge all the wonder people who donated. They came out of the woodworks to show their support, and I'm beyond touched by this. Words can't describe how humbled I am to see all of this.

Time is going to fly by now with all the things I need to do to prepare for this. Only a month away! I can't believe it!

Hello all - I've been quiet on the front, I know. Winter semester kicked in after the holidays, and I've been focused on picking up work to foot the bills. I'm also now a snowboard instructor at Mt. Holly, so I've been going to their clinics and getting my training done. 

I've been waiting to get updates on the Deaflympics and finally got my answers over the past weekend! 

Here's the information I've gotten thus far:

Deaflympics Schedule:

Flight Schedule:

We will be flying out from JFK on March 23 around 4pm to Moscow.  Jack is working with the Russian Federation to fly from Moscow to Khanty-Mansiysk.  We will return on April 6 around 4pm

Fundraiser Goal:

I'm still halfway from my fundraiser goal of $5,000. The deadline is Feb 20th or I can't go! Please help me spread the word! I'm still working on adding more fundraiser events. Ain't easy! 

I appreciate your ongoing support! World goes 'round because of people like YOU. <3

SO I've been pretty quiet since the fundraiser. Thanksgiving holidays were coming up. Went to the Seven Springs for their opening weekend with my family from Maryland.
My sister Bri needed a helmet. You like? ;) 

Don't worry. We found a better helmet for her.

Hello from Mt. Holly
Came back and heard about Mt. Holly having a snowboard clinics  the following weekend for those who want to become an instructor. I signed up and after last weekend, I'm now a snowboard instructor at Holly!
The holidays are coming up, and I'll have the chance to hit two birds with one stone... to ride during more during the break and to instruct those who wanna learn how to ride.

I'm also scheming for the next fundraiser event since I'm half-way from my goal. Stay tuned!
