Former Junior Shooter needs your help

Patrick Sunderman is a former junior shooter from Minnesota. Patrick is currently a fourth year member of the West Virginia University (WVU) Rifle Team, and one of the top shooters in the country in 3 Position Small bore and 10M Air gun.

Recently, Patrick had the privilege to compete at the USA Shooting National Championships. Not only did Patrick's participation in this event serve as his trial for the USA National Team for the ISSF World Cup of 2015 in Azerbaijan, it also began his journey on his road to the Olympics.

Based on Patrick's performance at the Championship, he was extended an offer to compete for an MQS (Minimum Qualifying Score) at the 2015 ISSF World Cup in Gabala, Azerbaijan. Patrick's successful participation in the 2015 ISSF World Cup is necessary in order for Patrick to be eligible for the 2016 USA Olympic Team Trials.

While WVU generously supports Patrick's participation in all WVU rifle matches, WVU does not have the budget for the World Cup and Olympic Trial matches. Patrick's family is also unable to fully financially support him in his efforts to attend these matches. The good news is, the NCAA rules have been revised to allow athletes to be supported via donations providing that the amount donated does not exceed the athlete's "actual and necessary" expenses.

Patrick's 2015 - 2016 Competition expenses are expected to exceed $10,000 (travel, room/board, match fees/shooting supplies).

Patrick and his family would greatly appreciate any support you can give him and thank you in advance.

To make a financial contribution you can donate to Patrick via PayPal through his website: www.patrick1200.com or by check made out to Patrick Sunderman and sent to the address below:

Attn. Lisa Meinerts

Feel free to contact either Patrick or his coach Jon Hammond with any questions.

Thank you and God Bless,

Jon Hammond Head Rifle Coach
