Hi, my name is Yosef. I currently live in Seattle where I spend most of my time hiking and exploring the pacific northwest I've been on the US Deaf Men's National Team (USDMNT) since 2008, having played at the Deaf World Cup 3 times and Pan America twice. However, this will be my first time playing at the Deaflympics and I couldn't be more excited. In 2019, we won the first ever gold medal for USDMNT at the Pan American Games in Chile and we're ready to win another victory in Brazil in 2022. To help raise money for the USA Deaf Soccer Association, I'm taking this challenge to the next level by matching donations with elevation gain. For every financial goal I meet, I'll take on increasingly difficult hikes, matching the elevation gain to the total amount of donations received. Our first goal to hit is $1,000 and will continue all the way until my final goal of $6,000. I will post updates here as I meet the following goals with your donations and support. $1,000 = 1,000 elevation gain hike, $2,000 = 2,000 elevation gain hike, $3,000 = 3,000 elevation gain hike, $4,000 = 4,000 elevation gain hike, $5,000 = 5,000 elevation gain hike, $6,000 = I will announce the details once I reach my goal. Thank you for helping me reach my goal by donating. Let's go!!
The Deaflympics take place every 4 years, and I have the opportunity to complete as one of forty-four elite d/Deaf or Hard of Hearing (HoH) athletes in our country. I will be representing the United States as part of the delegation attending this event, and I need your support to attend in this once in a life time event. Soccer is just one of 21 different sporting events offered at the 2022 Deaflympics. The event will start with an Opening Ceremonies, followed by 14 days of intense competition, and a Closing Ceremonies. Check out the information the the 2022 Deaflympics website: Click Here
Please consider a donation to my efforts. Any amount will take me closer to my goal. I need to raise $6,000 for the 14 day once in a lifetime experience!
Note: The money from this fundraiser will go towards USADSA (100%) and its support of the USDWNT & USDMNT as they compete in the 2022 Deaflympics May 1st-15th in Caxias do Sul, Brazil.
