Your Opportunity to Get Involved in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games!

Please take the opportunity to make a Glasgow athlete's dream of competing at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games come true!

I am pole vaulter from Glasgow, and have competed for the local club Victoria Glasgow for the past 7 years. I have now re-located to Loughborough to train as a full-time athlete with hopes of reaching the Commonweath Games final. Part of my plans to reach that final (in front of the home crowd at Hampden!) is to fund a trip to Arizona to compete in a number of world-class competitions. The trip is set to cost £2000 and therefore any support towards the trip will be hugely appreciated!

I have currently vaulted 3.90m, only 15 cm off the games standard!! Therefore your support will be going a long way to ensure that I have every opportunity to reach that qualifying standard, and hopefully to surpass it! Certainly my target will be to aim for 4m20cm to push for a place in the final.

I am looking to raise £600 towards my trip, as this will help to cover the cost of my flights.

In return for large contributions I will happily wear company branding in competitions, offer motivational and work/life balance blogs to the company and if possible, mention your support in media and press releases! However, there are also some other great rewards for those on a budget!

Many, many thanks!!
