Swindon’s Adina-Rae Nyahwa is looking for financial support to help her realise her dream of representing Great Britain.
The 22-year-old is hoping to reach her goal of £3,000 to help her on her way to representing her country in the winter sport of Snowboard Cross.
Snowboard Cross is one of the fastest growing winter sports, providing spectators with a mix of high-speed racing, dynamic jumps and strategic thinking.
Team GB Snowboard Cross (SBX) will be competing at International Ski Federation (FIS) European, and World Cup competitions across Europe. FIS Snowboard Cross events are televised on Eurosport.
“I am so proud and excited as I have recently been selected to represent the British Snowboard Team,” Nyahwa said.
“It is such an amazing opportunity and who knows where it may take me.
“I am pleased to be working with Wiltshire and Swindon Sport and Podium Partners who have given me the opportunity to raise money using their unique Sports Funding platform, so I can achieve my ambition to represent my country.”
For 6 months of the year, the GB Snowboard cross squad lives and trains together in the Austrian Alps, which is where Nyahwa is looking for support.
“The training program is completely athlete funded and as you can imagine it isn’t cheap,” she said.
“This is where I need support as money I raise through my appeal will enable me to purchase an SBX race board and the specialist equipment I need, to train and compete for my country.”
Karel Bretveld, CEO Podium Partners added: “This is an excellent opportunity for Adina and we would love to help her raise enough money train with the British Team.
“What an incredible opportunity for her and a chance of a lifetime.
“By working with us Adina can benefit from Gift Aid increasing her income for every £100 she will receive £118.00.
“We are the only fundraising platform that offer this opportunity specifically for Sport and it is a 20% better return than other such platforms.”
