Sunday December 7th from 4-6pm at the Durango Recreation Center, local road cyclist Carmen Small McNelis will be hosting a fundraiser to help her travel to Europe to live and train, in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. For more information, please check out her blog at www.cmcnellis.blogspot.com.
“This fundraiser is to help local athlete and Olympic hopeful Carmen Small McNellis to raise money, so she can race this season in Europe. As part of her long term preparation, she intends to race in Europe for the next 4 years leading to the Olympics. In order to do this successfully, she needs to raise money so she can train full time to reach her full potential. As a native of Durango, she has always admired how the community supports their athletes and is hopeful that you’ll continue that tradition with her. “
