What are you funding?

 

You’re funding a dream and turning it into a reality. This concept is going to make my Olympic Dream a reality, but expose our sport in a way it’s never been seen before. Portraying the beauty of the river and introducing you, and the world, to the favourite personalities of the canoe slalom community as I meet them, train with them and we journey together to the Rio Olympics.

 

What do you get back?

 

This isn’t just a hand out, it’s a hand up. You’ll be helping me and in return I’ll help you by gifting you an amazing shot to decorate your office, living room, 1on1 photo/video tutorial or even the unique experience of going down my favorite river with me and have a video of the experience.
