Please Send Jules to Volleyball Nationals
Organized by: Sylvia Musser
From my daughter:
Hi, my names Juliana, I'm sixteen years old and I live in Monument, Colorado. Now this is the part where I tell you what's wrong with me and why I need your help. Well I don't have cancer, I don't need any new organs, I don't have a family to support and I don't have any disabilitites. I know what you're thinking, I don't look like the best canidate for this. Why help me when there are plenty of others on here who have real complications to overcome, right? But hear me out, I play volleyball for an 18's team here in Monument and we have been given the opportunity to go to Nationals! Now if you want to go anywhere with volleyball whether that be college or futher Nationals is your best shot for scouts. You won't find better opportunities to be seen anywhere else! It's a shot you've got to take when you get it because for most it only comes around once. However that takes place in Orlando, Florida. Anyone whose seen a map knows that's a bit far from Colorado. And far means expensive. Now here's my sob story, my mom is a single parent and things are hard sometimes but we usually seem to figure it out. She works so hard for me to be able to play volleyball and for that I owe her my life because volleyball is my world. The court is the one place I can concentrate on what's happening then and there and just forget about everything else. It's my escape. We're usually stretching paychecks, making them last as long as possible. Putting money aside for Orlando is difficult when there are other important things that need to be paid, but we're trying and I'm saving up my babysitting money too. Living pay check to pay check you get pretty good at deciding what is really imoportant or not and this, this is important. Getting to go would mean the world to me. If I can't raise the money I can't go. Boo hoo right? But going to Nationals is an opportunity that may not come around for me again. We've worked so hard to get this far I can't quit now. Thank you for any little help you might be able to give!
