My name is Holyee Jackson and I am a proud Indigenous BMX Athlete.

I have been racing BMX since i was 2 and a Half years old and I have a dream which is quickly becoming a reality through my Hard work and Determination in my sport of BMX. That dream "2032 Olympic Games" Held right here in my home country of Australia.


How my Bmx journey started:

(picture this) I am two and a half years old, and my dad takes me out to my first BMX track with him, at that time I had a purple three-wheeler plastic ride on bike I had just received for Christmas and that particular day I had forgotten my shoes my dad told me to stay on the path and not go on the track Well......

Of course I didn't listen, and I rode that purple plastic three-wheeler bike barefoot and all strait down a concrete 5-meter hill and onto the first jump of that BMX track feet in the air. "I WAS HOOKED!" So here I am today that same girl with a big dream and now I Need your support.

I have competed in many events during my BMX Journey throughout the years racing events every weekend at different tracks in southeast Queensland, around Australia and around the world. Non of this is possible without the hard work of my parents, we have faced many financial challenges in my BMX career including, missing out on crucial events both Australia and Worldwide. I've seen my parents do everything they can to make my hard work & dedication & Olympic Hope a reality even as far as giving up on dreams of their own just to support MY BMX Dream. For them its nothing as they would do anything to support me but to me it is absolutely humbling just how much they sacrifice for myself and my siblings. This is why your financial assistance is crucial in my pledge to use the funds for Travel & Accommodation (Internationally & Australia wide), For expert training equipment to ensure I am at peak performance as well as Costs associated with Coaches, Gyms, Nutrition and Training & Racing gear. With my dedication, hard work, focus, passion for my sport and your support the image of this dream becomes possible. By becoming part of my journey through my chosen sport of BMX you will contribute to the growth of BMX on the world stage and become a part of my Dream. As I focus on my dreams I to hope to be that image for every aspiring athlete out there to know that Through Hard work and dedication and the ability to ask for help they to will very much so make their dreams a reality.

My Training & Education:

I currently train on and off the bike 6 days/nights a week and attend school to achieve my education 3 days per week with the support of my school. Having a Dream comes with challenges like juggling your education as well as your Sport but I believe I can achieve it all. I currently travel long distances for Gym and BMX Facilities to train at, this involves my mum and dad juggling the driving for both these things. I hope to be able to purchase some specialized equipment (a whatt bike & Start gate) to help with the Travel as I will then be able to achieve some of my training at home.


A very wise man a huge supporter of mine has always said to me:


"its not about the final line its about the journey"


I Believe we can take this journey together, Thank you for your support.
