Paraequestrian needs Funding
I am writing because I am trying to get some sponsors to help me get to the CPEDI*** show in Del Mar, CA the week of March 13th, 2011. I am taking 2 of my stallions and I am still needing to raise $5K to get there.
If I could get people to look at my website: www.loakleaf.org and on that website there is are 2 agencies: the PRE and the United States Paraequestrian Association that are 501c(3) agencies that will take donations and sponsorships for me so that they are tax fee for anyone that donates.
This competition will help me qualify for the 2011 World championships and the 2012 Paralympics by giving me a qualifying score I need in an International show. The next step this year are the selection trials then for the 2011 World Championships.
Starting on March 7th, 2011, anyone can go to my blog and be updated on what I am doing and I will be starting a youtube video update of videos so that people can also watch some videos.
Please help me, I do not have that much more and I have already raised and I myself have supplied much of this on my own. I train everyday with a Grand Prix trainer to attain the skills that I need for this. I live in Ohio so this trip is going to be a large one for my horses and I and I have to take a groom, my trainer, and aid because of my cancer (I have 4th stage Mantle Cell Lymphoma and CIDP) and myself, and this trip will be a 10 day long trip.
Please help me finish getting the money to go. I need the money no later than Feb. 28th so that I can have things in order and I need to get another $700 in order so that I can get the plane tickets ordered unless someone has airline miles that they are willing to give me for this trip. Any product, rental car that someone would like to buy then donate for the 10 days, Hotel for the 13th through the 16th I still need in Del Mar, CA are products that can still be sponsored.
I honestly and greatly appreciate all the help everyone has given me in trying to help me get to California.
