I am planning on making the trip to Auckland, New Zealand for the World Masters Games in 2017. The World Masters Games are similar to the olympics in that is covers many different sports. The difference with the World Masters Games are that anyone can participate as long as they meet the minimum age for the sport in which they would like to participate in. In the past I have participated in swimming and plan to again. Unlike the olympics where there are corporate sponsors to help teams everyone that goes to these games is on their own. As such I am trying to raise the money to help cover the cost of travel to Auckland for the games in 2017. Any help towards my goal is greatly appreciated. Participating in these games is a great experience and allows me to compete against others from all over the world.
