National Team Member Needs Our Support


You might have seen Sam Mulligan on TV recently racing against Marcel Hirscher and the best skiers in the world.  Sam is one of us, A Tyee skier who grew up on Grouse Mountain. He's now just steps away from the top rungs of ski racing and he needs our help to get there.

Here's a short letter to us from his family asking for our help:

"I am writing on behalf of the ‘Europa Cup Men’s speed team. As you know, Sam is part of the group who are our next generation of World Cup racers. This season is actually grossly underfunded for these young men by $100k. We as a group of athletes and parents are working to meet this shortfall. There are two ways we have been approaching. First, our families have contacted people we know asking them to direct a donation to this program on the Alpine Canada site. It is very important to specify “Europa cup team" in the comment section in order that the funds go to the team and the donor gets a tax receipt. Also, we are planning a fun fundraiser on Dec 27 at Whistler."(See the attached poster for details)
"It would mean a lot to Sam and our family (if you could help). He would be appealing himself but it is race season and pretty hard to do both." 
Anything we as Tyee families can do to help I'm sure would be greatly appreciated.  Go Sam!
