Local para-athlete searches for sponsors

A local para-athlete is looking for sponsors.
Sixteen-year-old Branden Troutman competes in wheelchair rugby, wheelchair track, and wheelchair basketball, as Lloydminster’s only para-athlete. Troutman has excelled early at these sports, making Team Alberta in basketball after playing for only one year, and after playing track and rugby for only a couple of months. Troutman also says he is becoming a known rookie early on, getting interviews regularly at para-sports events.
However, Troutman says, he is having trouble keeping up with the sport. With costs such as athletic wear, wheelchair tires and tubes, and gas money to para-sports events, he is hoping for local businesses to help cover his costs.
Troutman says since he travels across the country, he can help medium-sized businesses gain exposure in other communities and cities where events are held.
Anyone interested in sponsoring Troutman should email [email protected]
