Hi Water Ski Family!
We, the 2019 USA Adaptive Water Ski Team, need to fund our trip to the World Championships in Norway in July. We’re the only country to medal in all 13 Worlds (won 8 of them), the only country to win 4 consecutive Worlds, and the only self funded team among our fiercest competitors.
Skiing’s expensive and we know most clubs and skiers don’t have a lot of extra money to contribute to others. So … we came up with a Buoy Buddy Campaign. A Buoy Buddy is a person, club, business, or organization that contributes $1 per team member to help with our Worlds expenses, estimated at $85,000.
There are 19 of us on this year’s Team; 14 athletes and 5 volunteer staff. We ask you to be our $19 Buoy Buddy. (Of course we’ll happily accept a donation of any amount:-))
You might not be familiar with our athletes or adaptive skiing (check our website) but I can confidently promise Team USA skiers will make you proud of their athleticism and patriotism! Slalom, tricks & jump - 3 divisions – vision impaired, standing and seated (further classified by level of impairment).
Please do check us out (www.usaadaptivewaterski.org/team) and share our Buoy Buddy request with your members, family, and friends.
You can donate via the PayPal link on our website or by mailing a check to USA-AWSWS c/o Neva Brett 1155 E Pacheco Blvd, Los Banos, CA 93635. (As a USA-WSWS sports discipline, donations are a charitable contribution. IRS EIN # 59-0841458)
We truly appreciate your time and consideration and wish you the absolute best of life!
Ski Happy and Expect the Best!
