In case you haven’t heard I’ve recently re-joined the Senior Women’s National Field Hockey team program and as my first major part of my commitment I have been selected to the 27 member roster for the up coming World Cup qualifier. I will be taking a breather from school for the Spring semester and finally pursuing my opportunity to play for Canada! I believe this time around is going to be amazing and I am putting forth all I’ve got the next few months.
That being said we have a few tours coming up and as the program feels pretty much self-funded, we have an amazing new set of fundraising campaigners with FHC that have put together a new fundraising program! I totally support it! Every athlete must individually raise $2400 and 100% of that total goes directly to tours and travel! Every great international team needs at least 30 games to even be able to think about really competing on the world stage and currently Canada can afford maybe 10! So, this fundraising initiative is VERY important and I think this is a great opportunity to support individual athletes since you must write down the name of the person you are in support of on the donation form!
I am going to be circulating donation forms around the field, posting it on websites but this is my first (sorry for the future spam) email out to friends and family asking for YOU to support me (and my team) as we try and qualify for the world cup, and later, the Olympics! Every dollar goes a long way and I need to get $2400 but I think I can totally go above and beyond that!!
Upcoming Tour Schedule:
January: Two-week International Tour. Location: Malaysia or Spain?
March: World Cup Qualifier, USA.
September: 4 Nation Tour, Europe
October: Commonwealth Games, Delhi India
1. ONLINE —> You can go to FIELD HOCKEY CANADA (www.fieldhockey.ca) website and click ’BREAK THROUGH 2009" and follow the instructions. BE SURE TO WRITE MY NAME DOWN after you have made your payment
2. CHEQUE —> Print and fill in a donation form ( I have a bunch too) and write a cheque to field hockey canada (240-1101 Prince of Wales Drive, ottawa, Ont, K2C 3W7) and give it to me or mail it to them!
Tax receipts are sent out in Feb 2010
Finally, if you are donating and are comfortable telling me, I have to keep track since I have only until the end of December to raise my $2400 … so let me know if you are able to donate and help even if it is only $2.00 I WILL BE THANKFUL!!!
THANKS EVERYONE! Feel Free to contact me if you have more questions! Also feel free to pass this on to others that you know…
