Elli Terwiel of Sun Peaks is looking to raise money for the upcoming ski season.
Terwiel, who spent last season on the World Cup circuit, is looking to qualify for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. The 24-year-old University of Vermont student has been trying to raise the $15,000 she needs to pay her Alpine Canada national team fees.
Because she is an NCAA student, she cannot use prize money from her races so has turned to crowdfunding to make the payments. She is looking for donations on makeachamp.com.
Terwiel also will be leading a preseason dryland training session on Sunday, 3 p.m., in Sun Peaks village. According to a news release, “It will be a light, field workout focusing on mobility, leg strength and balance to help get everyone fit and mobile for the upcoming ski season.”
