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.

Name: Emergency Travel Funding for the Beach Volleyball Teams
Amount Raised: $79,830.24
Fundraising Goal: $100,000.00

CAN Fund



CAN Fund is a not for profit organization created to fill a funding gap and give our Canadian athletes (summer, winter, able-bodied and Paralympic) the financial support they need to train and compete for Canada. Where CAN Fund makes a significant impact is in the years leading up to the Games, the years when no one is watching or cheering, or even aware of our athletes and their journey to be the best in the world. The majority of our athletes are paying for equipment, travel to competitions and training camps, coaching, proper nutrition, extra physiotherapy and team fees that range from $1,000 to $27,000. With every donation to CAN Fund you are given the name of the athlete who will benefit from your support and you receive a charitable tax receipt.
