Being an elite athlete takes training six hours a day, plus time getting to and from the boathouse, meal preparation, and getting lots of rest. Even a flexible part time job can be taxing on how rested I am for the afternoon practice. Currently my only employment is with Sparks Consulting, about ten hours per month. I do not recieve financial support for USRowing or the US Olympic Committee. I am giving everything I have to a dream that costs to achieve. Please share the Olympic Dream with me. I very much appreciate your support!

How to Help

Tax deductible donations are much appreciated. All funds go directly to Helen Rose Tompkins, so that she can focus on training in these years building to the Olympics.
