Spencer's Fundraising Page
My name is Spencer Miller and I'm currently in Grade 11 at Yale Secondary school In Abbotsford, B.C. I play club rugby for the Abbotsford RFC and represented Valley East in PRCs. This past summer I also played for Team BC U16 for both 15s and 7s, which we were lucky enough to win gold at the National Rugby Championship for 15s, and Western Canada Summer Games for 7s. I play mainly Scrum-half but have also played fullback and wing.
I have recently been invited to be part of the Canada U17 National Team that is participating in a tour in March 2012 that includes a week in Gloucester, England and then on to the Wellington Festival, a prestigious international tournament attracting teams from Europe, North America and the UK.
While it is a tremendous honour to represent Canada on this tour, there is also a tour cost of $3250.00 that we, as players have to cover through the current “Pay to Play” model.
If you are able to assist me in meeting my financial obligations so I can take part in this fantastic opportunity, your support will be greatly appreciated. Rugby Canada has set up this online fundraising tool through Mercury Communications Group as a way to help secure the funds needed to participate in this tour. This site will allow me to collect donations and in return will provide an official tax receipt for your gift.
I also invite you to follow our team’s progress while on the tour by visiting the Rugby Canada website (www.rugbycanada.ca), by joining the Rugby Canada Fan Page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/rugbycanada) or following the Rugby Canada Twitter account (www.twitter.com/rugbycanada).
Thank you in advance for your support and assisting me in reaching my goal to play for Canada.
