Welcome to Our Rally
My name is Julianna Lisi and I'm a 13 year old second year U14 Alpine ski racer skiing for Burke Mountain Academy in Burke, Vermont. (one of the top ski academies in the USA)
I have a younger brother Johnathan who is 9 and is a second year U10 and he skis for the Okemo mountain weekend program.
We both ski for fantastic teams, coaches and love pursuing our ski racing passions.
Why We Are Raising Funds
- Seeking Donations and or equipment Sponsors! Julianna has been skiing on hand me down GS skis for her Super G races and they are no longer skiable. Bases and edges are completely gone. Her SL skis have delaminated and is lacking much needed tuning equipment and race wax. Tuition, equipment costs, race fees, travel expenses have just completely maxed out my parents credit cards and home equity loans. This week I have U14 Eastern Championships in Lake Placid and I am hoping for some support.
- I am trying to raise money so I can help my parents pay off lots of credit card debt and travel to Easterns and if all goes well CanAms.
- Next season BMA tuition fees and Summer camps are being booked. Without your support my parents will not be able to lock in my spot at BMA or ski camps. Next season I am required to be a full time Burkie and tuition costs almost double compared to winter term costs. There are 4-6 Off season camps and highly recommended, 2 of them are mandatory and range between $3000 - $4500 for each camp never mind the high costs for full term tuition at around $58,000.
- Johnathan inherits my old equipment and does not go to a ski academy but would love to pursue a devo type program which would allow him to be on snow 3 days a week and on weekends. His U10 season ended early due to my parents finances being completely maxed out and to help me finish my season.

Julianna was ranked #1 in Northern VT Council.
She took 1st place in GS at VT states, 3rd in SL and 3rd in SG on some very tired skis. Please help this promising young ski racer and her brother pursue their dreams.
