I am originally from GHANA (west Africa). I have had the talent and the passion for track and field since infancy. I have worked hard and trained harder to achieve many of my goals for both myself and for my country. Recently, I worked hard to finance travel to the United States to have access to better training and facilities to help me reach my ultimate two goals. They are (in ascending order of personal importance) competing at the IAAF CONTINENTAL CUP FINAL to be followed by competing at THE OLYMPICS (Rio 2016).
In 2014 due to hard word and determination, I realized my first dream and represented my Continent (Africa) at the IAAF continental cup in Morocco (Marrakech).
It is now time to make my career dream goal of competing at the Olympic Games come to fruition. Rio 2016 is my ultimate goal, but I cannot make it happen without additional support. For that reason I am appealing to my friends, family, and fans to help me to make this dream a reality. I do not want to go and just take part in Rio. Rather, I am training with purpose to make myself, my nation, and my supporters very proud. I have never been this close, and now I ask you to help me complete this incredible journey with Olympic glory shared together.
God richly bless you all for your kind gesture and support.
My costs I am looking to cover are most closely related to:
1: Training facility and coaching fees.
2: Travel expenses related to both indoor and outdoor competition fees.
3: Improvement of my nutritional planning and supplement regimen.
4: Alleviate the overall financial constraint I have encountered as a high performance athlete without funding.
Current support available:
Outside of working and personally taking on all expenses, I received a very small IOC grant to help offset a portion of costs.
I have never been fitter and more ready to represent Ghana and your support at the Olympic level, and I also know this opportunity will not be available 4 years from now. This is my last chance to achieve a lifetime of dreams, and I hope you’ll be a very special part of making it come true.
Thank you for your support.
