Being a Canadian elite athlete is expensive. This summer I am raising funds in Vancouver for the Canadian boccia team, as it heads down the grueling road to Rio 2016. The goal is to have a lot of fun along the way.
The poster sums it up nicely. Play indoor boccia. Wrestle your boss. Win a ham. Have a blast. Support a great cause.
Boccia is one of the most inclusive sports that exist – any ability level can play – and it is fantastic team building and recreation. On August 29, 2013 at 1 Athletes Way, Vancouver we are inviting teams to come and have a fun evening while supporting our national team. There will be drinks, boccia, sumo suits, a meat raffle and so on, at the community centre gym in the Olympic Village.
A $500 donation is the minimum per team. To register go to http://bit.ly/b-throwdown – spots are limited.
Can’t make the event? Support our Canadian boccia team by donating whatever you can here: http://chim.pn/11LOOcs
Next time you see one of us on a podium, know that you helped put us there.
