Hey guys, so you might remember the post I made about getting invited to the Elite Residency Camp for USA Rugby at the Olympic Training Center in California.
Unlike the last camp I went to I can’t earn a scholarship for this one, I have to raise the money all on my own. After camp fees and the flight it is coming out to about $1700.
Like you guys, I’m a full-time college student too and I understand the struggle when it comes to money. If you could spare it though, I would really appreciate your help. If you can’t help with money, its no biggie, I totally understand, simply reblogging this would be a huge help to me!
Rugby is making it’s debut in the Olympics in 2016 and my goal is to be on that squad. I’ve been an athlete my entire life and my wildest dream has always been to participate in an Olympics. I can hardly believe how quickly rugby has been paving the way for me to reach that goal. Attending this camp would put me in a National Team environment where I would be trained by USA coaches and players alike. If everything goes well, I could be on my way to a U-20 team and who knows where else.
Guys, I love this game, and I love you for reading this all the way through. I can promise you right now that no one is going to work harder for this than I am. You’re going to see a lot of this from now on, I hope to have a video up soon or more pictures, or something. If there is an idea you have that could help me fundraise, short of selling my soul I’m open to doing it.
Thanks again guys, Love you! -Gabi
