Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help support the RAF Pumas Women's Ice Hockey team fund their way to the CARHA 2020 Rec Ice Hockey World Cup
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.
In 2016 a few ladies from the RAF had the vision to put together the first female representative ice hockey team in the UK Armed Forces. In the September of that year they put on a taster day where many females from across the RAF came together at Telford ice rink to get their first real taste of the sport of ice hockey and loved it! By early 2017 we’d come up with a name for the team and played our very first game as the RAF Pumas. In 2018 the team is going from strength to strength and to give ourselves a challenge to focus on, we've set ourselves the goal of getting to the CARHA World Cup 2020 in Richmond, BC, Canada.
Unfortunately, that goal doesn’t come without the costs, including entry fee, travel and accommodation for the duration of the tournament, which is a little beyond the financial reach of the team. Which is why we’ve set ourselves a further challenge to raise some money to get us there by running, cycling, rowing, swimming and of course doing a few laps of the ice rink!
We’ll be going the ‘long way across’ and covering the distance from RAF Cosford all the way to British Columbia, following a specific route that covers 6577 miles. Collectively, over the next year we’ll be covering that distance by logging the miles on runs, swims and efforts in the gym and keeping you updated on our progress as we go. We hope you can support us and help us reach our goal and give us the opportunity to show what we can achieve on the world stage.
