We are trying to raise money for hotels, food and gas for her 2012 softball season and the trip to the 2012 Fast Pitch World Series.

Ericka is a 12 year old girl who has a dream just like any other girl. She is very smart and very caring. She is funny and she can be a nerd when she wants to be. She has an amazing personality, but her life at home is so much different then what she shows the world or her friends. She comes from a single parent home. She is one of five children. Her older brother is in the Marines and her older sister is a single mom. Ericka is the second youngest child. She has two other brothers who still live at home with her. Her dream is simple; she wants to play softball for the USA Olympic team. Her team has become a Junior USSSA Pride team. This is a great opportunity for her, because she is going to the 2012 Fast Pitch World Series in Orlando, Florida. There she wil attend clinics held by the professional USSSA Pride team.

We have tried to raise money by many other means, but all have failed. We had a rib sell and only sold enough to pay for her new uniforms. All of our family lives in San Antonio, Texas, except for her maternal grandfather and grandmother. So, we struggle with fundraising. I know that there has to be someone out there who is willing to help us. Someone who could sponsor her for the whole season or just be willing to give any amount. All will be greatly appreciated.

When she thought that it was going to be too much of a burden for me to support her financially to be on this team. She was willing to give it up and not play anymore. She is a very talented player and I had to convince her to stay on the team. I promised her I would do everything I could to make her dream possible. With your help we will be one step closer to making Ericka's dream come true.

Please help me keep her dream alive.
