It has been said that Nick and I are the favorites to win the Gold Medal in the Paralympic SKUD 18 class in Beijing in September, but we need your help. Take advantage of your last opportunity to make a year end tax deductible donation. Your help will allow us to compete for the gold.
Our total budget for travel and training is close to $220,000. This includes 2 trips to China, regattas, monthly training sessions and expenses of top training partners and a training boat. Astonishingly, there is not enough financial support from US Sailing and the US Olympic Committee. The enormous commitment to compete for a gold medal is matched only by the enormity of the financial hurdle. Approximately 85% of our total budget must be sourced by us, the sailors.
