I have been twirling baton since I was 3 years old. I have twirled in many local parades and events since then as well as traveled to compete statewide. I have received state titles as an individual and national titles on various teams that I have competed with. Last year I had the opportunity to twirl fire at the races in Red Bluff while representing Mercy Catholic High School. This past year I qualified as the National 15 year old Dance Twirl Champion. And now drum roll…..I have been selected to represent the United States on the International Cup team that is competing in Limoge, France this Summer!!!
My twirling experiences have taught me how to work with a group in the many teams I have participated on while also encouraging me to reach personal goals in mastering more difficult tricks and performing more intricate routines. I practice at least two hours a day on weekdays and spend all weekend twirling in Sacramento with my team at least once or twice each month. I hope to twirl for a major college once I graduate High School.
As you can imagine, there are many expenses associated with participating in a sport like this. My parents support my travel, lessons, costumes and entry fees for all of my local, state, regional and national competitions. However I’m hoping to fundraise to support my trip to France this Summer. I’m hoping you will consider supporting my continuing twirling career by helping me to participate in this great international opportunity.
My entire trip will cost approximately $3,000. In return for your sponsorship of $100 or more I would be happy to twirl at an event for you for one half hour. If you don’t have an event coming up I would be happy to go to one of the local nursing homes in honor of your contribution. If your business sponsors me, I will thank you on my instagram account (384 followers) and my mom will also thank the business publicly on her Facebook page (823 friends.)
We do hope that this is something you might be willing to consider. I’m happy to provide you with more details of my twirling experiences, pictures, videos, etc. Thank you for giving this your consideration.
