Make A Champ Campaign

Today is the launch of my Alpine fundraising “Make A Champ” Campaign. I have decided to have a go at crowd funding in order to be able to cover the costs of my ski race training prior to the European Youth Winter Olympic Games in January 2015. Please help me and be a part of my journey. I have 45 days left to reach my fundraising target. Please take a look and you can donate at makeachamp.com/RobertPoth
I will appreciate every donation from small to large or even a message of support. Thank you!
