Triathlon at the Elite level for an athlete is an expensive endeavour. Coaching, travel, Sports medicine, rehabilitation, pool rentals, bike shipping and maintenance, and the incredible amount of shoes and goggles we burn through is astounding. I am grateful for the amazing clothing and wetsuit sponsorships I have received these past two years, but it doesn’t pay for any of the vast travel costs. All of this is out of pocket, costing thousands of dollars each month to maintain my #7 World Ranking amongst blind triathletes almost 20 years my junior!
Without major financial sponsors, speaking engagements and generous friends and donors, my race season is simply not possible. Several of our international triathlon race require me to pay for mine and my guide’s airfare and hotel and ground transit and bike shipping, averaging $4000 per race. We have 4-6 races per season, lots of training camps in between, and cannot do this without your help. Thank you so much to so many that have already donated.
Please consider a donation through my GoFundMe page. You can help me get to that finish line this year at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games with my guide and tandem bike. THANK YOU! #LoveandGratitude. – Amy
