World Championship Fundraiser
UPDATE: Julia's spin-a-thon was a great success but fundraising continues for this fantastic Raffle! The winners will be selected in early December!
As part of her fundraising effort to get to World Championships and replace her stolen bike, on November 11, Julia will teach a spin class for those generous donors of $20 and above (space limited). The class will take place at Evolve Fitness in Cambridge, MA at 7pm (8pm class will be added if necessary!). See all fundraising detail below!
This past summer was incredible for me as an athlete. I worked extremely hard, which culminated in my taking a spot on the Team USA 2012 World Championship Triathlon team. This means I’ve earned the opportunity to represent the United States at the Age Group World Championships next year in Auckland, New Zealand. This will require even more training, hard work and determination to get to my best fitness level ever. Having been on a National team previously (Jr. National Sprint Kayak team), I know this will not only take dedication but as much support from friends, family and sponsors as possible.
This is especially true now.
Two weeks ago my brand new 2011 Trek Madone 4.7 racing bicycle was stolen.
This is an incredible blow; not only was I very attached to that bike but it was the biggest financial investment I had made in the sport. In combination with the expenses of getting to World Championships in New Zealand, I realize I need to ask for some help. I’m writing to ask if you would consider becoming a partner to help me raise money to replace my bike. I am a spin instructor at a local gym in Cambridge, MA, which has offered me space to host a “Spin-a-thon and Beyond – a fundraiser for the Tiny Tri-er” (me!). This is a huge effort to raise as much as I can to help allay the huge costs of a new bike and travel to Worlds. Class will be limited to 40 people - so please make sure to indicate if you'd like to do that or just to donate.
Here is how it works:
$20 gets a spot in the Spin-a-thon and two entries into the big raffle! For every additional $10, you get at least another entry. For generous donations of over $60, you enter the Grand Prize raffle for a homemade quilt or Sports apparel gift package or massage. Additional amounts are welcome - there's a spot through the registration process where you are able to contribute!
