My name is Nelmari Beetge, age 28, and I'm a dedicated and passionate figure skating competitor and Champion.
I was the 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Cape Inter-Provincial Artistic Adult Champion, as well as the 2016, 2017 and 2018 Western Province Artistic Adult Champion and has recently qualified to represent South Africa internationally at Oberstorf in Germany from the 19th of May 2019. The opportunity to go and compete and represent South Africa has been a goal and dream of mine since I started figure skating.
I need financial assistance and funding for my expenses, including international and internal flights for myself , transport and transfers, visas, accommodation and meals, coaching and entry fees, and kit & clothing. Unfortunately, there is no funding from SA Sport or the South African Figure Skating Association, for skaters travelling overseas, so all of the above expenses would have to be covered by myself.
I would really appreciate any consideration for donations and sponsorship towards the above expenses relating to my trip.
A Big thank you to those who have already made donations. It is greatly appreciated!
