This is go time and training is year round to prepare to qualify in the next two years for Team USA and international competition. I cannot accomplish this without your help. My coach Rimma Egorkina is moving and I will have to travel to train in Florida, Washington DC, Oklahoma City and Georgia in the late fall and winter. Without the help of the community and sponsors I cannot train, cover travel and housing costs to properly prepare for a chance at the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
Please share with your friends, work colleagues and companies to see if they would be interested in sponsorship opportunities.
