My name is Gregor Zed and I'm a half pipe snowboarder from Halifax NS.
I've been doing this for longer than I can remember. I could have never imagined, back when my family would go to Wentworth every weekend (and the occasional snow day), that I would now be traveling the world to do exactly what I loved doing as a kid. Only now, on an international stage.
Snowboarding has been a dream come true over and over. This year in particular! I got my first World Cup start and a spot at the Olympic test event in Korea. (but unfortunately had to pull out due to injury) Snowboarding is extremely gratifying for me and the goal for me is to continue to put all my energy into it and with some luck continue to be rewarded.
With your support it makes it much more realistic to travel to all the contests I need to be at to reach my goals. Having the crowd support and a financial cushion takes a lot of stress off in a sport that is so demanding of these things and I cannot thank you enough. Your money will be used on travel, coaching, ski hill passes, training costs and of course some living expenses.
Take a look through my give backs for contributions of $40 and greater. I would be happy to contact you to discuss sponsorship opportunities which would help me to sustain the dream. I will be working full time on this campaign as part of my summer job.
Thank you so much for your support.
