My name is Dominique Verwey (26) and I live in Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa.
I have recently had the privilege of making the South African Ice Hockey Women's National Team scheduled to play a world championship tournament in Bulgaria.
The IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, Division III tournament takes place in Sofia, Bulgaria from the 4th – 10th December 2019. The participating countries are Bulgaria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Lithuania, Romania and South Africa.
The target amount covers: traveling (flights to Bulgaria and back to SA, and transport to and from hotel and rink), food, accommodation (Hotel Stay in Bulgaria) as well as visa application costs and training sessions (camp cost in Bulgaria and tournament fee).
All funds must be paid by 15 November 2019.
Ice Hockey is a big part of my life and it has taught me many valuable skills and life lessons. It has provided me with the opportunity to play with my Family (Dad & Brother) as well as helped me build amazing friendships.
Attending this tournament and representing South Africa will mean that the many hours of training and hard work put into this opportunity has been worth it.
It will also prove to me that despite several serious injuries when you do something you LOVE every second is worth it despite the setbacks, as those obstacles don't mean anything once you have reached your goal!!!
As a small Ice hockey country with and even smaller ladies/women's athlete population, attending this tournament will provide the opportunity for EMPOWERMENT by allowing all those girls who look up to me as a senior lady, to know that their time and effort is not wasted!
Unfortunately, I can not do this without some assistance financially and would appreciate your help.
Every little bit goes a long way!
