Support Noelle’s Race to the 2016 Rio Olympics!


Supporters – I am asking for your help & support on my journey to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio!

I am a National team athlete that competes in the 400m hurdles, while living and training in Windsor. At the end of the 2015 season, I was ranked 47th in the world!

I am a two-time National Champion, and have represented Canada several times:

  • 2015 North American,Central American,Caribbean(NACAC) Championships (4th)
  • 2014 Commonwealth Games (5th)
  • 2015, 2014 World Relay Championships team member
  • 2013 World Championships (24th)
  • 2013 Francophone Games (2nd)
  • 2013 World Universiade (FISU) Games (11th)

In 2015/2016, I am training to make the Canadian Olympic team and once again represent Canada on the international stage.

Without my full time dedication and commitment, and without tremendous support, I would not have achieved the success I have to date on the international stage.

In addition to training on the track and in the weight room (usually six days a week for two to four hours per day), I also spend a large part of my time ensuring I remain healthy with therapy treatments to prevent injury and facilitate recovery.

The list of expenses and yearly cost to reach my athletic goals is great:

— Club membership & coaching fees                   $850
— Training & competition shoes/gear                  $500
— Training camps                                                     $2500
— Sports therapy/massage/chiropractic              $2000
— Competition fees                                                 $7000
     (travel, accommodation, meet entry fees)

*This is in addition to nutrition & the cost of living. 

I am looking to raise money in order to subsidize the expenses that I absorb as an athlete, that come with training and competing at a high level.

I am asking for any help you can offer to support my journey through the 2016 season as I strive to represent Canada at the Olympics!
