Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
If you don't know me already, I'm Katie Simpson and I'm 29 years old. I have been practising Kimura Shukokai Karate for 21 years, since the age of 8 and I currently train and teach up to 6 days a week. I have competed at International level since the age of 13 I'am currently ranked as the KSI World & European Kata Champion. In the years that I have competed at International level I have managed to carve out quite a successful career and have been placed in the top three at every event I have attended.Here are my gold medal winning International successes to date:
GOLD: 2003 European Champs, Germany, Girls Kumite, 2004 World Champs, South Africa, Girls Kumite, 2005 European Champs, Estonia, Girls Kumite, 2005 European Champs, Estonia, Ladies Team Kumite, 2007 European Champs, Sweden, Ladies Team Kumite, 2009 European Champs, Germany, Ladies Team Kumite, 2009 European Champs, Germany, Ladies Team Kata, 2013 European Champs, Finland, Ladies Kata, 2013 European Champs, Finland, Team Kata, 2013 European Champs, Finland, Team Kumite, 2015 European Champs, Switzerland, Ladies Kata, 2016 World Champs, Germany, Ladies Kata
What most people probably don't realise, is that in order to do what I do, it costs an athlete of my calibre in excess of £2,000+ per year in order to train, compete and most importantly succeed Internationally. Unfortunately in the sport that I am so dedicated to there is no funding available and this means I have to self-fund all trips and training.
My Goal: KSI European Karate Championships, Estonia: Funding raised will help towards the cost of training, equipment, and travel needed to attend and defend my European title. If you would like to help me achieve my aspirations to participate in the KSI European Karate Championships, then please if you can make a donation towards my campaign and share the link with as many close friends as you can.If you are interested in sponsoring me further then please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
