Canadian Beach Volleyball Team Emergency Funding
This funding comes at a critical time for the National Beach Volleyball athletes. The athletes are all in major debt and stressed. Just by creating the CAN Fund Emergency Support Fund for them last Tuesday May 15th they feel supported and a little empowered. I shared one of my favourite sayings with them " If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far, go together." On Sunday morning May 20th we told them the minimum goal of $60,000 had been reached. They were all very happy to hear this news. They have been living in scarcity for so long having funded training camps, and traveling to China, Poland and Brazil for Olympic qualifiers on their own. Many have shared they have $5 or $20 in their bank accounts with all their credit cards maxed. Both the men's and women's teams are competing in the final Olympic qualifying tournaments and with the Games only two months away we want them to focus on succeeding. We will continue to raise money for these athletes. Thank you to all our proud Canadians who are answering the call to support these athletes.

For 10 years CAN Fund has been helping great talent become world class and is a leading catalyst in supporting athletes and their dreams. This is a critical time for our athletes as they compete around the world to qualify to represent Canada and wear the maple leaf next year! We are inviting all Canadians to support our athletes so they can afford proper nutrition, better equipment, coaching fees, and cover travel and training expenses on their journey to London! With every donation, you find out the athlete you directly supported and receive a tax receipt.
