“I love playing tennis and want to play more, but my family cannot afford for me to play as much as I would like without assistance. I have received three Foundation grants which have helped pay for lessons and tournaments. Two years ago in an effort to help pay for my expenses, I wrote a letter asking for support from family and friends, and also collected aluminum cans. Last year my fundraising including making and selling tennis ornaments, and this year I am making polygon lights which look like tennis balls. During the past year I participated in 35 USTA tournaments. I hope to someday build an indoor tennis facility in my area giving kids more opportunities to play without traveling so far.”
