 Success Stories

Some thought she was crazy, some thought she would never make it. A career ending injury crushed down Tara’s ski jumping aspirations. Years of rehab and a successful run at biathlon, only resulted in her longing to be back at the big ski jumping hill. After only 4 practice sessions she decided to compete at the National championships. Incredibly, she ended up 5th - posting the 3rd largest jump among all american world cup jumpers. This qualified her for continental cups in Germany and Finland.

Besides her heroic comeback, she had a successful MAKEACHAMP campaign that reached 134% of its goal. She’s joined by 36 contributors, 10,040.00$ in funding and the motivation to get to podium in Germany and Finland.
