Hello, my name is Deja Barber and I am a 24-year-old person with cerebral palsy. I have done adaptive sports for much of my life and boccia has become my new favorite. I have only been playing this sports competition for only a little over five years. During my team in this sport, I have gained skills and knowledge to get better each time I play this sport. With that being said I am creating this campaign to fund my travels to compete in international competitions for the USA National team.
Welcome to the fundraising page for our USA Boccia Nationals Team. Each year USA Boccia competes in International Competitions throughout the world. The cost of one tournament per athlete can range from $2,000 to $4,000. USA Boccia does not have the financial resources to support our athletes so the entire funding to attend a competition is the sole responsibility of the athletes.
Athletes fees cover the cost of housing, tournament registration, coaches fees, and their personal care attendants needed to assist them during the event. This fee does not cover the cost of their airfare to get to and from the tournament.
We hope that you will share your enthusiasm and love of competition and help support our athletes as they and commitment to this wonderful sport with others. All contributions are tax deductible as a 501(C)3 contribution with the Internal Revenue Code at their fair market value.
Groups and individuals raising money for the same goal.
