    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    We are a group of young gymnasts from Waveney Gymnastics Club that have been selected to compete at The Special Olympics Summer Games 2017. This is a fantastic opportunity to show off our gymnastics as well as develop our life skills. The Olympic movement is made up of three parts, Olympics, Paralympics and Special Olympics which is for people with a Learning or Intellectual Disability. We will be heading to Sheffield in August of next year for a week to compete as well as take part in the opening and closing ceremony. This could also lead onto competing internationally for some. As you can imagine it does cost to enter. In fact it costs £375 per athlete for entry, accomodation and food. On top of that we need training kit, competition kit and ceremony outfits, training and travel costs not to mention the qualifying competitions leading up to it.

    Please help to fulfill our dreams by donating generously. Thank you.
