It’s that time of year again… who’s excited about the winter?? I am!! Ok so most people are hoping the summer stays a little longer but October means 1 thing- it’s Snowflake Fundraiser time! This is a huge year. Yeh I seem to say that every year but this one is extra big. This little thing called the Olympics is happening in less than 6 months time. I took the summer off skis to rest up, heal and recover and wow time has flown.
Now I don’t want to give you the whole sob story. I’m sure everyone is fed up hearing it by now- another athlete needs funding, standard! The fact of the matter is, I have no funding, no coach and limited access to resources. I’ve spent more than a couple of days in complete despair, rehabbing broken bones and unsure of my future, it’s easy to fall into that pit of doom. So what can I do? I can suck it up and deal with it! I consider myself a very lucky girl. Not only do I have my dream job, I have amazing sponsors and supporters who help me everyday. Even with this great help, I still have to find ways of raising some funds so I can get through my season.
On November the 2nd I am hosting a big party in Glasgow. It’s not going to be your average, stuffy sit down dinner, we are mixing it up a little… if you fancy a great time and want to support my Olympic journey, check it out. You will not only be supporting me, but also the amazing charities that are The Skiers Trust and Disability Snowsport.
