Shelley’s immediate goal is to make the Australian team for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. With her selection to travel to Europe as part of the Boxing Australia Academy Team tour, she is one step closer to achieving this.

Shelley was selected for the eight week tour by Boxing Australia after her performance at an Australian Institute of Sport training camp in late July.

“The European tour will give me the opportunity to see what other countries are doing and more importantly, the competition I’m likely to face in Glasgow,” she said.

“I can’t wait to wear the green and gold again.”

Some assistance is needed to help the talented athlete achieve her dream. She is seeking some financial support to ensure she can take full advantage of the European tour and continue to train for the Commonwealth Games team.

“Financial support for female boxers is limited,” Shelley explained.

“Unfortunately whether you achieve your dream can come down to dollars.”

Shelley has worked hard to give herself the best possible chance to get to Glasgow.

“Adrenalin Fitness plus Mike and Paula from the Laurieton Hotel Bistro have been great supporters,” Shelley said.

“Lately I’ve needed to travel interstate for competition, which really eats into my savings.”

If you can help, Shelley would love to hear from you. She is not looking for thousands, just enough to help her reach her goal.
