Getting Sponsors

Now that the news of making the National Team has really sunk in,  I have to not only concentrate on training more but also getting some donations/sponsors to help with the next year.  My parents helped me make a media kit and I went to visit several of the local businesses in Barrhaven for their support and I was so shocked by their generosity and encouragement.  Every penny helps!!!  I will have a lot more out of town training sessions and flights to Vancouver for the Nationals so it will get expensive.  I was pretty nervous going into the first few places since I’ve never done this before but then it got easier when people were so nice to me.  Their names will all be posted in the local newspaper in two weeks to thank them.  All these new experiences are making me realize just how big of an honour and commitment it is to represent Canada.   This is going to be a very exciting year 🙂
