Weʼre raising £50,000 to My journey to become a pilot for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic games
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.
My name is Nick Gleeson and I am a professional athlete for the Great Britain Bobsleigh team who are a part of the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association (BBSA). I am also a serving soldier within the 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment.
I have been involved in the sport of Bobsleigh for just over 3 years now and got introduced to the sport by the Army coach Sgt Steve Smith. From then, he progressed me through to the GB setup until I reached the 2018 Olympic games in PyeongChang. Within that time scale, I have worked my way through the team, competing at the Europa Cup Circuit 2016/17, World Junior Championships 2017 and also the World cup circuit 2017/18. I also return every season to compete for the Army Bobsleigh team at the Interservice Championships against the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.
As the Olympic Cycle closes to and end we start looking forward to not only the next season but the next 4 years leading up to the next Winter Olympics in Beijing, China. My personal aim and achievement within this cycle is to become a driver of the sled and return home with a medal. The Great Britain Bobsleigh team has some of the best athletes within the sport and the world, but we can only go so far with just physical performance and unfortunately Bobsleigh is not a cheap sport, and for me wishing to pursue a career as a driver over the next 4 year, I need some help.
I love the sport of Bobsleigh as it is nothing like anything else in the world! Unfortunately, I can’t do it all on my own and need help to get to the ultimate end goal in 4 years.
If you do choose to sponsor myself/ the team, you would be able to have your logo/emblem displayed on the side of my sled, also if you are really interested and would like to even give a bit of Bobsleigh a go, I can even invite you down to Bath University where we train and you will have a chance to have a day on the Bobsleigh Push Track we use down there.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this document and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future and hopefully you will be able to help me out to get the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me, if you wish to check me out on social media and find out a little more about myself or the sport then you will find me as follows:
Kind Regards, Nick Gleeson OLY
