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!
