For the past two years Lindsay McLeod has been out of the swimming world due to a diagnosis of TOS (thoracic outlet syndrome) which resulted in two surgeries.
With determination and passion she has been able to get to personal best times within a year of being back in the water. These encouraging results made Lindsay decide to compete in Europe at the Mare Nostrum series and later in the year at the FINA World Cup.
Due to the lack of funding in South African sports, she is required to pay her own way and was looking for support on the Dreamfuel crowdfunding platform.
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.
