Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear family and friends,
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I am very excited to have been chosen to play basketball for the state of Missouri in the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games in Seattle, Washington. I've been playing basketball with my brothers and on different teams since I was 5 years old, and now I'm getting a chance to play in the National games. I was chosen to play for Team Missouri after I attended an invitation tryout camp. I don't think I'll be doing to much dunking in Seattle, but hopefully I can hit some three pointers along the way. There will be over 4,000 athletes and coaches from across the United States competing in 14 different events to show how hard work and dedication can pay off. Hopefully I can help Team Missouri bring home a gold medal in basketball.
In order to attend the USA games every athlete needs to raise money. I will need to raise $3,000 to cover the cost of transportation, housing, food, uniforms and practice camps. Special Olympics Missouri (SOMO) has made it easy for you to support me:
1. You can donate directly online via this secure fundraising page on the right-hand side of this screen; or
2. You can send a check payable to SOMO with my name on the memo line (very important to place my name on the memo line). Then mail your check to:

Special Olympics not only allows my friends and me to competitively participate in sports, it also allows us the opportunity to make new friends and practice our leadership skills both on and off the practice field. We learn about advocacy and sportsmanship. Sharing in team competition, especially at this level is something that my friends and I are not always given the chance to do.
If you want to, you can even watch me play on your computer as I compete in the games, and you can also see the amazing opening ceremonies. This is the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics, and they are making plans to have a very big celebration.
Can you please donate to SOMO to help me get to Seattle? Any amount is appreciated and no amount is too much or too small. Donations to Special Olympics are tax deductible.
Thank you very much,
