The 2012 Olympics are just around the corner! The preparation, planning, and the costs to get there can be very stressful. That is why my coach, Charles Scarrow is working so hard to get this accomplished.
We are fundraising money to train in Florida where I have a great opportunity to become the best athlete I can. There we not only have the great training weather year round, but also have access to a great training center at Disney Wide World of Sports, and also an Olympic training centre in Clermont. I will have the pleasure to be training with the best athletes in the world, such as, Tiffany Ross-Williams who is an Olympic Finalist, and David Oliver, an Olympic Bronze medalist. Not only that, but I will have the best eyes of track and field on me every day by the infamous Brooks Johnson. Being in this environment everyday will motivate me and push me to be a better athlete.
Since I am not a sponsored athlete yet, the money to have the opportunity is limited. That is why I have so many people getting involved to fund-raise the money to cover the costs of my training and living so that I have the best opportunity to prepare for the 2012 Olympics and even 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Any donation is always helpful and appreciated.
