Hi, and thank you for taking a few minutes to get to know me and my fundraising venture. I have been involved in the world of Ultimate frisbee for over 30 years. I played competitively, leisurely and passionately (obssesively perhaps), coached youth and developed tournaments. Now, at fifty-five, I am looking to give back to this exciting and fast growing sport. The non-profit organization Ultimate Peace (ultimatepeace.org) combines the very things that are so dear to my heart; the sport of Ultimate, peace in the Middle East, and youth empowerment. I immediately jumped at the chance to volunteer.
I was invited to go to Israel two years ago to coach for UP and fell head over heels with the kids, the country, and the all the love that radiated through camp. Seeing Arab, Palestinian and Jewish youth hugging, tears of joy running down their cheeks after one week together, was heartwarming. These were seeds of change right before my eyes.
I am thrilled to be going back again this summer. My goal is to raise enough money to fund both my trip as well as fund camp for as many underserved youth as possible.
Thanks so much!
