Hi, I’m Kelly Gunther, thank you for letting me share my story with you!
I've always said we must AlWAYS BELIEVE!!! As I approach the end of my Olympic career I believe I can get my Olympic medal. But I need help. Please help me achieve my dream!
I’m presenting this video to show you what I've overcome and to show you my determination that anything is possible, if only YOU BELIEVE!!!
Four years have gone by in a blink of an eye! Olympic trials will be in Milwaukee Wisconsin January 2 -7th, and the 2018 Winter Olympics will be in Pyeongchang South Korea February 8-25th.
But I need help! This will cost lots and lots of money! I have to pay to get there, I have to go to private training, I need equipment, I will have to pay for entry forms, and I need food, so please help me on my road to Pyeongchang!
I've always worked and have tried to do everything I can to support myself, but these last few months leading up to the Olympic trials I just can't work any longer. I need extra rehab for some physical issues and I just can't stand on my feet long doing the retail work I've been doing along with the extra intense training that goes in this time of year. Plus I am gone away to training camps or to my personal trainer, or to world cups. That is why I just have to reach out for help.
And I do try to give back. I had a learning disability my whole school career. I was so ashamed that I would never talk about it. But after making the 2014 Olympic team I decided that I needed to talk about it and encourage others, that anything is possible, that even someone who was in special ed classes could become an Olympian. I did! Even someone who's foot was hanging off her leg and was never supposed to skate again could become an Olympian. I did! So even someone who maybe is not supposed to win a medal may just win one.... so please help me make my dream a possibility ..... Please help support me to Pyeongchang.
If you could please find it in you to help me I can't tell you how much it would mean to me. And your donation is tax deductible as I have established a 5013c. So please help me, Join me and be part of my teame part of my team, and thank you for believing in me!
I would like to take this time to thank everyone who has helped me along the way, my family, my friends, and everone who has believed in me and supported me, I no way could of done this without you. And I thank my trainer Mr. John Schaeffer for ALWAYS believing in me and all those extra sessions.
