Ski racing is an expensive sport for any athlete, but  being a visually impaired athlete the cost is nearly double due to the added expenses of the guide. Many guides on the World Cup circuit are paid by their National Teams.  This is not the case in the United States.  With limited family income we will struggle to reach our goals as a team and make ends meet, without outside assistance.

Sponsor information for the 2010/2011 Paralympic Season 

Our estimated budget is $65,000. This includes costs for training camps, travel, going to NorAm and World Cup races, race entries, lift tickets, coaching and equipment, for me and my guide. Contact us for more information on how your companies logo could be on our helmets for next season.  This is great exposure on TV and in newspaper and magazine photos.

Without more support our dreams will not become reality. Please help by joining “Team Vision 4 Gold”.  Help us bring home gold for the USA!
