My name is Nevin Brown. I'm an aerialist on the U.S. Ski Team. This rally is to help me achieve my childhood dream of competing for a Gold medal at the Olympic Games this coming February.
My monetary goal is important to me because I spend ALL of my time training and recovering. Being a professional and competing at the world level has always been a childhood goal. This rally will help me continue to focus on training these next few months going into the Oympics instead of having to worry about the price of my next plane ticket, hotel room, pair of skis, etc.
This rally is extremely important to me. It will get me one step closer to being an Olympic competitior and winning a medal. I truly beielve my strong work ethic will be shown through my performance this winter and insipre others to work hard in achieving their goals. Helping me achieve my goals and tracking my success all the way to Sochi will inspire young athletes to work hard, stay clean, and help them maintain a positive, strong frame of mind. Nevertheless, a donation will also give you a positive feeling knowing you directly provided a U.S. Olympic hopeful the support for his upcomming success at the Olympics this winter.
I was born and raised in Ohio where there wasn't as much skiing as there was trick tossing. My first coach, Bill Harris, from Chesterland, OH started teaching me Aerials when I was 12. If it wasn't for Bill, I would have never known how to get into the sport. He guided me to the correct training facilities and all the way to the U.S. Ski Team. I love Aerials for the thrill of landing a nice jump on the World Cup Stage. Aerials makes me so happy and I love it so much, I am willing to sacrifice and dedicate my life toward training and being one of the best.
To get to Sochi, I need
18,000 dollars for these reasons:
$10,500 - Air Fare (China, Canada, Belarus, Russia, Nationals)
$2,500 - Equipment (skis, bindings, boots, wax, glasses, etc.)
$2,000 - Lodging
$1,000 Miscelaneous things that will Be needed through the Winter
$800 - Ground Transportation
$700 - Food
$500 - Overweight Luggage
This goal is very important because it will be my primary means for support.
My past successes: Two Time Nor/Am Tour Champion (2010, 2012), Two Time World Championship Team Member (2011,2013) World Championship Finalist (2011), Four Top Ten World Cup Finishes.
My support team consists of my coaches and my parents. My coaches have backed me and given me the support to dream big, and my parents have always helped on that end as well as finaincally throughout the years. This is a big season with additional finances needed on the road to Sochi. This is why I urge you to please help me out in anyway you can.
If you decide to donate or not, pass this on to anyone who would feel passionate about contributing to my Olympic glory in Sochi 2014 via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc.
Thank You for All of Your Consideration and Support!
