About me:

Hi. My name is Layke Shipley and I am 11 years old. I am a Swimmer and Surf Lifesaving athlete from Kiama Downs. I am currently one of the top swimmers for my age in the NSW South Coast area. I train 5 days a week and am constantly improving. I get up at 5 o’clock  on many of these days and my Mum or Dad take me to training before school, I train after school also. I am really trying hard. My dream is to one day become one of the best in swimming and Ironman in NSW. If I work hard maybe I can make it to Nationals.

Fundraising to support my Sporting Career.  

I am seeking sponsorship or donations and this is why I need help. 

Entry to some carnivals can be up to $17.50 per race and I am starting to qualify for up to 15 races so that is $262.50 just for one day of racing. Many of these carnivals are far away so we need to get there (petrol) and often we have to stay as well (accommodation costs a lot). The Surf Lifesaving Carnivals are held all over Australia too (more travel and fees and accommodation costs). Uniforms cost at least $500 and they change from year to year. I need gear, swimwear, wetsuits and I have to see the local Physiotherapist to help prevent injuries.  Being coached and the cost of training is another expense too.

I understand that it is very expensive to be doing my sport. I try to help by collecting bottles and cans that I take to Return and Earn recycling. I make some pocket money and by doing this it helps Mum and Dad and is also good for the environment.

I am doing this fundraising as an “Individual Athlete” as part of the Australian Sports Foundation Fundraising program which I have been fully approved for. A portion of your donation(5%) will go to the ASF.

If you can help me that would be great, but if not that’s ok too. Thank you for reading about me and my sport.
