Dear Donor / Friend / Fellow Athlete
I would like to take this opportunity to share my story with you. Earlier in July I participated at the South African Biathle Championships which took place in George. Biathle is a sport event that involves the following sequence, Run-Swim-Run. I finished on the podium and now I have the privilege to represent South Africa at the Biathle World Championships which will be held in Viveiro, Spain from 20-24 September. This a huge honor and I am so grateful to be chosen for this prestigious event. However, partaking in such a trip overseas can cost an arm and a leg. I decided to start this campaign with the hope to raise the sufficient amount of money to be able to participate. (Money is being raised in euro, since it's the currency used in Spain.) I don't think that money or anything else should stand in the way of one's dreams. As Walt Disney said: "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
I direct this message to anyone in the position to make a donation (no matter how big or small!) and to please share my story with family members, friends, coworkers etc. Your support will be of utmost importance and greatly appreciated!
All things considered, I am thankful for the abilities my Maker has blessed me with. I would like to share a favorite verse of mine with you: "Now the glory be to God, who by His mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream - infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes." -Ephesians 3:20
