Do you know what it takes to make a dream come true? It takes vision, drive, commitment, discipline, sacrifice, passion and most importantly, the support of a community who share the dream. Only 6% of lifters are female and most do not receive the financial support required to dedicate them to training.

I have a dream to compete as a female Olympic Weightlifter in the 2015 Pan Am Games and the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Brazil. I dream of making Canada proud on the world stage by bringing home a gold medal. As a disciplined and driven athlete, I am proud to be an example to young girls everywhere by showing them that hard work and determination can make dreams come true. Having only begun lifting in 2011, I am a four-time Ontario Junior Champion and the current female Junior and Senior Olympic Weightlifting Champion of Ontario in 69kg class. In 2014, I also became the Canadian Senior Weightlifting Champion in the 75kg class. And am now the 2015 Canadian Junior Champion in the same class.

By donating to my cause, you can help to make my dreams come true. 100% of funds raised will go towards fueling the dream with training, supplements, treatments and competitions. Funds are needed to facilitate training, qualification and participation in the 2015 World Junior Championships in Poland, the 2015 Pan Am Games and 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil. Will you please help to fuel my dream?

I thank you,
Maya Laylor
