While both of us are honoured to have been selected to represent Canada in Australian Rules Football at the 2014 International Cup in Melbourne this August, there is not only a big time commitment, but a financial one as well. Due to footy’s relative new popularity and exposure in Canada, national team members do not receive monetary support from government or amateur athlete organizations. As such, we are required to personally fund our campaign and are appealing to the generosity of friends, family, colleagues and other sports enthusiasts to help us along the red and white road to Aus!

Our combined goal as a duo is to raise $9,000 by July 31, 2014.

July 1 Update: We have reached 85% of our financial goal, with a month to go! Thank you to our supporters thus far! The support has been tremendous!

Reaching this goal would cover both of our flights, accommodations, team apparel/uniforms and local transport and team events while in Australia. If we exceed our goal, any funds raised in excess will be donated to the Team Canada Australia fund that will be used for trip costs of the entire team.

We have a vast selection of donation options – which are supplemented with customized givebacks or boomerangs as we like to call them. Just like a boomerang, throw us a donation and we’ll return back with some great swag as a thank you! Also, we’ll be working towards offering bonus boomerangs throughout our campaign.  Although we know we have many supporters across the country and overseas, due to logistics some bonus boomerangs may only be available for those living in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
