BENEFITING: Women's Sports Foundation
ORGANIZER: Women's Sports Foundation
EVENT: WSF Athlete Face Off
My name is Grete Eliassen and I am fortunate enough to call myself a professional skier. I started skiing when I was 2 years old and right away I knew I found something special. I loved being able to just be myself and cruise down the mountain anyway that I liked, whether it was getting as much air as I could possibly get or skiing in the trees. However, I had a great mom and dad that made it a priority to bring their kids to the mountains. Not everyone gets this chance and that's why I have been involved with the Women's Sports Foundation since I heard about it. I think it's important to give every little girl the chance to participate in sports. And that's why I started this crowdrise page. Let's give every little girl the chance to be active!
I am so excited to be competing against my fellow athletes this month to raise money so that the Women's Sports Foundation can give a new generation of athletes the great opportunities that I've had! The WSF Travel & Training Program helps female athletes to offset expenses such as coaching, specialized training, equipment and travel, giving them the chance to train and compete.
I'm deeply honored to help these talented, yet underfunded, women pursue the highest level of achievement in their sport. I hope to raise the most money and have a T&T grant made to an athlete in freeskiing in 2015.
So, would you consider a donation of $10 or more to help me reach my goal? Thanks in advance, and be sure to check out the ‘Donor Bonus Challenges’ tab for awesome prizes during our WSF Athlete Face Off charity challenge November 13 - 30!
Thanks so much for your support!
WE SUPPORT THE PURSUIT OF GREATNESS
The Women's Sports Foundation is a voice and advocate for champion women athletes around the world. This year, our athletes asked, "What can we do to pay it forward to the next generation?" And so they joined together and created the WSF ATHLETE FACE OFF.
In the spirit of thanks-giving, champion athletes will "Face Off" in head-to-head fundraisers for the Women's Sports Foundation's Travel & Training Program (T&T) to ensure that the next generation of female athletes reach their full potential – an experience that prepares them for leadership now and in the future.
T&T helps aspiring individual athletes and teams achieve even higher performance and rankings - regionally, nationally and internationally - by providing direct financial assistance. Since 1984, we have impacted the lives of more than 4,000 women.
Help your hero leave a legacy! The athlete with the highest fundraising total will have a T&T grant made to an athlete or team in her sport, in her name
Donate to help your favorite athlete surpass her goal and receive this honor!
