My name is Alexa Perkiel, I have been on the back of a horse since I was three months old with the hope of one day competing at the international level. Now at 25 years old, I have been invited to represent the United States as part of the Show Jumping Equestrian Team at the 19th Maccabiah Games in Israel. The Maccabiah Games, held every four years, are the Summer Olympics for Jewish athletes from around the world.
I hope that with your help and support I can achieve my required Yachad contribution. In Hebrew “Yachad” means together, and as a shared commitment, each athlete will raise the monies it will take for us, as a team, to obtain our Yachad obligation. I therefore am looking for donations to raise a minimum of $5,000.
I have been competitive in the sport of Three Day Eventing for 17 years. Three Day Eventing is the horse triathalon, which encompasses Dressage, Cross Country, and Show Jumping. I have trained with and worked for many past, present and future Olympians and know the love and dedication it takes for any athlete to pursue their passion and represent their country through sport. For the first time, the Maccabiah Games are including equestrian sports. I feel so privileged to have been selected and so honored to have the opportunity to not only represent my sport and country in a world class sporting event, but also my religion. I will have the chance to meet and connect with thousands of competitive Jewish athletes from all around the world...truly amazing!
