Hello,  I am looking to raise funds to assist San Francisco Eagle's Softball team to travel and compete in Gay Games 10 held in Paris, France. We all know traveling is hard; not just on the body but the wallet too. Now multiply that by 10 and you can imagine what the team is facing, with six months till game day each day gets tougher and tougher. The San Francisco Eagles were fortunate to participate in Gay Games 9, hosted in Akron/Cleveland, Ohio in 2014. During the week long stay we got to meet some amazingly talented athletes from all over the world. The most difficult part wasn't the competition... Even though due to thunder and lightning storms we played 11 games in only three days, which our team earned Silver in our Softball Division.  The most difficult part was everything the athlete has to provide; air fair, rental vehicle, insurance, gas, lodging, event fees, food, equipment....etc. Those all can easily add up and can become a daunting price tag. That's just domestic travel, now factor in the international requirements,  and prices.... it feels impossible to come up with. So, with your contribution; you can make  it possible. You can give the young child inside these talented athletes their dream of "Going for Gold" by competing in this years Gay Games 10 in Paris, France. Granting them a chance to bring home their Gold Medal, and stand proud on that podium.  Standing on the floor during the closing ceremony, at the medal presentation is a moment I will never forget. After a hard fought week of competition; that sound of the crowd screaming, cheering, clapping, as your presented with your medal really is one of those: "This Is A Dream" moments. Thousands of people cheering for you, accepting you and proud of your accomplishment. That moment....that lasting memory..... new friendships, ..... the times we struggled...... that grit to succeed..... that is what your contribution  can give this team of hardworking and committed athletes. Not only as the amazing individuals they are, but as the talented and proud team representing the city of  San Francisco.

Lets Get them all there; allowing them the chance to do as we so often say...     "GO FOR GOLD!!!!!"
