About the project

Hi, I'm Mark Pollock. I'm 26, originally from Albury, NSW and am currently on the Australian Cross Country Ski Team.

For the past 6 years I have been chasing my dreams of representing Australia and have had the honour of competing in Junior, Under 23 and Senior World Championships as well as World Cup and Continental Cup races. This past Australian season I was able to make the A-Qualification standard for the upcoming World Championships to be held in Austria in late February. I have never been pre-qualified for a World Championships before and this is the first time I have made the A-Qualification.

In order to prepare properly for the championships I will be spending the season over in Europe training and competing with the Australian Team in Davos, Switzerland.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you could help out at all your tax deductible donation will go directly towards paying for airfares, accommodation, travel expenses, coaching fees, wax support, race fees, and equipment.

You’re already a winner in my eyes mate. Not many people achieve this in their lifetime and I feel so chuffed to call you my friend. Let em bite your snow mate!!!
