As you saw a few weeks ago, I became a Pro Ambassador with Athlete Ally in order to do my part in eliminating homophobia in sports. Since then, I haven’t been able to do much besides help spread their word via Twitter and Facebook until today.
In order to give back, I will donate 10% of funds I raise in the next two weeks directly to Athlete Ally. For that, I need your help! I hope I can contribute at least $100 to the cause, and hopefully more!
Obviously, a big part of this is to help fund my upcoming skeleton season, which I’m afraid to say is looking like it’s slipping farther and farther away simply because of lack of funding. Despite working 30-40 hours a week on top of training, I just don’t have the finances to support myself. And unfortunately, this is why many sliders leave the sport: because they just can’t afford it. I hope this doesn’t happen to me, and I will need your help!
While these donations will help to get me through my skeleton season, I am so thrilled to do what I can for Athlete Ally. I’ve been so influenced by many athletes, some of whom are gay, that I can’t even imagine the fact that many suffered and continue to suffer through discrimination on the field.
Please spread the word, and do what you can to help me help support equality in sports!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
