I feel very fortunate to have been selected to play for the NSW State Basketball Team. Our State team will be competing against other States, and also some other countries, in the Pacific School Games in Adelaide in December. There will be 5,000 athletes competing in a range of sports - with an opening and closing ceremony - it will be like a mini Olympics. I am really looking forward to it!
However, there are also quite a lot of costs involved. Each player has to fund uniforms, flights, accommodation for 8 nights, food, as well as a games fees, etc. The total cost per player is expected to be greater than $5,000. Most of my team will fundraise to help offset some of the costs. I am going to try to raise money to help pay for the trip, too. I'll be selling raffle tickets, and I am going to try to raise money online as well.
I would really appreciate your support. Anything you can give is a big help - it all adds up.
Thanks in advance - I really appreciate it.
