On January 17, 2009, I experienced being the fastest female ski racer in the world. It was the result of years of discipline to training, commitment to goals, attention to detail and sacrifice.
In 2010, I was set to represent Canada at the Vancouver Olympic Games. Less than two months before they began, I crashed and was sidelined for the next two years. It wasn’t until this accident that I truly understood how important my dream was to me. I can now add resilience to my résumé.
I have had incredible support from my family and close friends to this point encouraging me to go hard, again, after my dream… a dream I am so close to achieving.
But now I need your help. One of my biggest invoices this season is my annual team fees of
$20 000. This cost allows me to chase snow all year long and train with the fastest skiers in the world. Alpine Skiing is an individual sport, but this will be a team effort! Your financial support will help me to stay focused on my job of making Canada a world contender in Russia at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
