Two-time U.S. Olympic swimmer and gold medalist Anthony Ervin will be competing on the World Cup circuit. Anthony will be representing the United States at stops in Dubai, Doha, Stockholm, Moscow, Berlin, Beijing, Tokyo, and Singapore.
However, his expenses for this global tour are not covered in full. So Team AE created a way in which you can support Anthony’s continued odyssey and receive what they hope are some fun and personal experiences in return. To compete in the World Cup 2012, Anthony has put a slew of international flights and hotel rooms on his credit card. In addition to travel and staying fueled with food every day, the cost of his journey totals $10,000 USD.
ProSwimWorkouts was able to make a $100 donation towards his goal of raising $10’000. With this donation come a few perks which we intend to give away to our premium members who make this possible!
Help support two-time U.S. Olympic swimmer & gold medalist Anthony Ervin as he travels the globe to compete on the World Cup circuit 2012.
If and when they achieve their goal, they want to make sure they’re giving back, so Anthony will donate half of anything made over $10,000 to our friends at Mamade, whose “Water to the Thirsty” project is providing clean water to those in the world who need it most.
