You may look at all the magazine covers and TV appearances by Lindsay Vonn and Bode Miller and think that being a ski racer is a glamorous life. But for the guys still working on that Olympic dream, it's not all sweetness and light. Park City's Holt Haga is trying to make the Olympic squad for 2010, but he needs some funds to get to all the qualifiers - here's how you can help one athlete with their Olympic dream:
I hope fall has been going well and that you are praying for some more snow!
In order to raise the funds necessary for me to train and compete in the Olympic qualification events leading up to Vancouver 2010, I am auctioning off a day of skiing with me. In addition to directly supporting me in my Olympic quest, a portion of each ticket purchased will be directed to the Park City Freestyle Team in support of the next generation of skiers looking to accomplish their dreams. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Park City Freestyle Ski Team website at www.pcfreestyle.com/holt.html
Please pass this e-mail to any and everyone you think might be interested in supporting me.
Thank you for your support in making my Olympic Dream possible!
