After applying for a second time, I was awarded with $2,500 to put toward my training and traveling expenses for this year. Shows the power of a little perseverance. I was awarded this grant in October and without a doubt, it gave me some financial relief so I could focus on training and making our team training camp to Austin, TX. The Women’s Sports Foundation was founded by Billie Jean King and it is a charitable, educational organization dedicated to promoting girls and women in sports and fitness.
Thank you very much to the Women’s Sport Foundation for your belief and support! It is an honor to be a 2015 grant recipient.
(I am now shooting to make the Women’s Lightweight Double, or the Women’s Open Double for the Olympic trials but at the time was thinking I was going to go for the Women’s Single Scull).
