Arman Serebrakian started the campaign

Help Arman reach his goal of representing Armenia in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia! Arman has been presented with the opportunity of a lifetime and is taking a year off from medical school to pursue his lifelong dream — and he cannot do it without your help. 

The sport of ski racing is very costly. World-class equipment, coaching, and training, along with lift tickets, travel expenses, lodging, ski tuning supplies, and competition entry fees all add up for every Olympic level alpine ski racer. Unfortunately, the Armenia Ski Federation has limited funding at this time, and although they have demonstrated their full support, will be unable to financially assist Arman. It is now up to him to raise the money required for him to be able to fund his on-snow training and competitions to be able to compete with the best in the world!

Check out his website http://armanserebrakian.com/ for more info.
