Support Canada’s Women’s National Field Hockey team to get to the World Cup and fund their tours to prepare them to qualify for the Olympics in 2012.
We have a few tours coming up and as the program feels pretty much self-funded, we have an amazing new set of fundraising campaigners with FHC that have put together a new fundraising program! Every athlete must individually raise $2400 and 100% of that total goes directly to tours and travel! Every great international team needs at least 30 games to even be able to think about really competing on the world stage and currently Canada can afford maybe 10! So, this fundraising initiative is VERY important and I think this is a great opportunity to support individual athletes since you must write down the name of the person you are in support of on the donation form!
Upcoming Tour Schedule:
January: Two-week International Tour. Location: Malaysia or Spain?
March: World Cup Qualifier, USA.
September: 4 Nation Tour, Europe
October: Commonwealth Games, Delhi India
