Project Send Sham to Tahoe

Update posted by Daniel Hua On May 07, 2018

Thank you everyone who have donated to this campaign so far. Through your support in fulfilling Sham's dream, I am proud to say that we have raised enough for his flight to Tahoe and also cover his stay there. Once again, thank you so much to everyone who has supported this campaign. Even though the main cost drivers are settled, there are still some additional funds that are needed for gear and race registration. Please continue to help get the word out about this campaign.

Regards

Daniel

Sham will be flying out to Tahoe on 26 Sept 2018 at 8.45am. Flight number UA2. During his stay in Tahoe, he will be staying at Best Western Plus Truckee-Tahoe Hotel, which is about 20mins away from the race site. He will be flying back after the race on 1 Oct, and arrive back in Singapore on 3 Oct 2018 at 7.35am on flight UA 37.

FAQ:

1. How was the amount of $4700 calculated?

Rough breakdown of costs which can be seen under the gallery (screenshots) for complete transparency:

Return flights ( Approx $2k SGD before taxes)

Accommodation ( Approx $1k SGD before taxes and gst)

Race Entry : Approx $290 SGD

Miscellaneous ( Etc, transfers to race location/to from airport, meals, emergency just in case) : $1k

Site hosting : $350

Total : $4700 (rounded up)

2. Why was that particular hotel chosen, and not airbnb or cheaper options?

The location for Tahoe is unique because it is up in a mountain ski resort. There are limited accommodation options, in fact the official spartan partner hotel is already full on those dates. This is the next nearest option.

Having to stay in a cheaper option but far away would increase transport costs and waste time travelling to and fro.

3. How will funds be presented to Sham when campaign ends?

A cheque for the total amount raised will be presented by Sham.
