I am a member of Team USA Boccia. Boccia is an Italian game that is similar to lawn bowling. It has been adapted for athletes with disabilities. For many years now I have been at the top of the US Boccia echelon and I hope to continue that tradition by competing for Team USA in the Americas Cup on August 2-9, 2013, in Gardner, Kansas. For more information about Boccia, please visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boccia.
Unfortunately, unlike many able-bodied sports boccia players don’t have large organizations and sponsors behind them. In fact, a large portion of the funding for these boccia trips comes directly from the players and their family’s pockets. This year, I am looking for the support of the online tech community, family and friends to raise at least $4000.00.
There are two methods that you can contribute to my fundraising effort. You can choose one of the following methods:
- Go to my GoFundMe page http://www.gofundme.com/1yoxac and donate directly.
- Email me at bocciaman[at]gmail.com to discuss other funding options.
- Registration Fees
- Personal Care Expenses
- Hotel & Travel Expenses
