Welcome to Our Rally Campaign!
We are a USA High Performance curling team with the main goal of representing the USA in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Although we do receive support from USA Curling, the funds that are allocated do not cover total expenses for the year. As this is an Olympic year coming up we have designed a very extensive schedule to put ourselves in the best position to secure a spot in the Olympic trials and perform to our max potential when the time arises. We are reaching out and asking for you to join our team and help financially support us in our journey to Olympus.
As part of our campaign we will be donating 15% of the money raised to Project Joy to help feed children in need in Northen Minnesota.
Meet the Team.
Our front end consists of 2016 World Junior Silvermedalists Thomas Howell and Korey Dropkin at the lead and second position. Throwing third and vicing is 2010 Olympian, Chris Plys. Lastly we have 2012 US Men's Champion Heath McCormick calling the game and shooting hammer stones.
Why We are Raising Funds.
Throughout the season we will incur several expenses including travel, lodging, entry fees, and food. The majority of the contributions will be used towards team travel, but we will also be donating a portion of the money raised to Project Joy to help feed children in need in Northern Minnesota.
We want to thank our family, friends and others who have supported us over the years of competing. Please help share this page and spread the word. We need as much financial support as possible to prepare ourselves for success.
