Due to the lack of funding, Swimming South Africa’s athletes are required to pay their our own way to international events such as World Championships.
Young and upcoming Erin Gallagher, selected for the 100 freestyle in Budapest, is among those athletes and needs help to get to Hungary.
For the last two years, I haven’t been able to swim due to a persistent shoulder injury. However, in the past month, I have been able to compete and train completely pain-free! Now, I have been chosen to represent my country in Budapest for the FINA World Championships. This is a huge honor and I am so grateful to be chosen for this prestigious event.
Erin has already reached out to us after our donation. We are convinced that she will make South Africa proud!
We are proud to support swimming related Dreamfuel campaigns with a $100 donation each and want to thank all of our premium members who make this possible!
Dreamfuel is the premier high-level crowd-funding platform specifically designed by and for athletes. They work with each athlete or athletic organization to tap into the community that surrounds them, thereby engaging new fans and supporters along the way.
There is an assumption that all Olympians, Olympic hopefuls and elite athletes have sponsors. This is far from the case, as 85% of Olympic hopefuls’ income is less than 15k USD / year. Dreamfuel’s goal is to provide athletes with a new revenue stream to support their incredible efforts outside of or in addition to the traditional means of sponsorships and governing body stipends.
