Nichole's Touchdown Drive
Organized by: Nichole Baca
Hello. My name is Nichole Baca.
I would like to take a moment to tell you a little about myself and my fundraising goals.
I am a 2nd year veteran that plays full contact football for a Nevada based semi-pro women's football team. After being introduced to the sport, through a co-worker, and trying out, I knew that I wanted to be a part of a team that had so much respect and passion for football.
It’s not every day that you see women, regardless of demographic, be involved in such a high intenensity sport, typically reserved for men. We've been told serveral times that we play with more heart than our male counterparts in the NFL. But, unlike the NFL players who get paid well to play, we must individualy support ourselves to play this sport we love. Costs include, but are not limited to, a onetime player fee, plus additional fees for the league, field, chain crew, referees, travel, and maintenance. All of these costs add up, but we are doing everything we can to fundraise and spread our name throughout the Nevada community.
My goal is to fundraise my player fee for the 2015-16 season, as well as help my fellow teammates raise money for the team, as a whole, for the upcoming season. We want our Nevada family to know that we are out here representing Northern Nevada by doing what we love as mothers, police officers, scientist, neighbors, family and friends.
Thank you for your time and donations. It is greatly appreciated!
