She's baaaaackkkkk!

Hey guys!

Here's an ASL version of the blog: Click me!

English version:

Winter Deaflympics is back again for 2015, and we're back in the running! This time it's in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia! It'll be on March 28th - April 5th of 2015. To follow the Winter Deaflympics 2015, click LIKE on the facebook page: Facebook Page; Deaflympics 2015. There's also an official website page to follow as well: Deaflympics 2015

What happened with the Winter Deaflympics in 2011 was a shock for everyone involved, but we're brushing the dust off our shoulders and rising from the ashes!

Long story short, the coaches have asked for me to rejoin the team, and I'm excited to be back! I've kept a log of everyone who donated from 2011, and I've returned the money back. So now, I have to fundraise once again.

Fundraising costs:

$3,700 to cover the flight to Russia, uniforms, room/boarding.
I'll also need to raise additional money to help with the training costs prior to the Deaflympics event, including the flight tickets I'll need to buy to meet my team at the airport. I'm estimating this to be at about another $1,000.

To round it up, my goal is to raise $5,000.

Most importantly, I have a deadline to raise and send in $1,850 by November 15th. My second deadline to send in another $1,850 is by January 30th.

I've started up a fundraising page so people from afar can help out: Go Fund Me

There are also a few local fundraising event/ideas that I'm currently scheming up so stay tuned!
