Keri Herman, Olympian, slopestyle skiing
I can't even tell you how much it means to me that people are willing to help support my ski career during times of financial struggle. I have so much more to contribute to the sport and this platform is such a great tool for people to come together and show their support for both elite and up-and-coming athletes. Thank you to everyone who contributes to help all these great athletes accomplish their dreams and goals.

The partnership between the USSA and RallyMe has been a tremendous benefit to the Rowe family in helping finance Sarah's ski racing dreams. The highly professional platform offers a vehicle that is a relatively unobtrusive way to seek donations. We are amazed at the response Sarah has received.  Donations have come from family, friends, business colleagues (past and present) and from many individuals that we do not know.
