After a dominant Northeast 7s season, the Mystics have clinched their spot in the USA Rugby National Sweet 16 with two 25+ point victories at the Blazing 7s in New Jersey! The Mystics will be travelling to Des Moines, Iowa for the tournament on August 8-9. Given their strong showing in the Northeast competition, the Mystics are looking to make a serious run at Nationals this year. As part of that effort we want to support the guys on the squad by ensuring that the trip is not a huge financial burden for them.
We are running an IndieGoGo campaign to help raise money towards the overall costs of the trip, and are asking all Mystic supporters to help by donating any and all amounts, AND by spreading the word about the campaign. We are hoping to get donations of all amounts – you can donate $5, $10, $20 or as much as you can. Every dollar will go towards one of the following expenses:
- $5 will buy breakfast for one player; $150 will pay for 30
- $10 will buy lunch for one player; $300 will pay for 30
- $15 will buy 10 cases of bottled water
- $20 will buy dinner for one player; $600 will pay for 30
- $150 will pay for lodging for one player
- $500 will pay for one player’s flight
In addition to donations, we really want to spread the word via email and social media. Please donate via the following link, and please share via Facebook and Twitter to make sure we raise as much awareness of the trip as possible:
