With the restrictions of budgets, the money doesn't go as far as it used to. The National Nordic Foundation was put in place to help raise money for World Cup, Continental Cup, World Junior Championships, Training Camps, and much more. Without the proper funding current and future athletes will struggle to advance. Right now, members of the National Nordic Combined team are having to pay for most of their trips this upcoming winter. Its not often you see national team members having to fork over their own money or mostly their parents wallets.
This needs to change and there are many ways you can start. I have pledged to raise $2000 to the NNF, and I hope you can help me!
The easiest is to make your own personal donation, you dollar will be used and will go very long way.
Drive for 25- is a single day fundraising event. Please spread the word and get everyone involved. Last year was very successful and we hope to continue this year!
