Cornwall ON – It’s not everyday that a local athlete gets a chance to compete at the highest level of their sport and that’s exactly what Christina “Corky” Julien is about to do, but she like most Canadian athletes need your support to help make that happen.
The Cornwall Golf and Country Club are helping her cause by donating space for a fund raising dinner Thursday April 21st at 6 PM. The proceeds are to help Ms Julien cover the costs for training and equipment as she prepares for the Women’s FIFA World Cup in Germany where she’s a Forward for Canada’s National team!
The Dinner is $40.00 with a meet and greet at 6PM and the dinner served at 7PM.
Canada’s women’s national team forward Christina Julien discusses Canada’s win over Switzerland in the opening match at 2010 Cyprus Women’s Cup and and her game winning goal.
Ms Julien hails from Williamstown Ontario and lives in Cornwall currently. The 22 year old has had 23 National appearances already and is a forward with the Ottawa Fury.
From the CanadaSoccer.com website:
Canada’s women’s national team has opened camp in Roma, Italy, a four-week camp as part of the team’s preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011. Coach Carolina Morace has called 24 players into camp from 23 March to 20 April.
Canada, whose title sponsor is Winners and presenting sponsor is Teck, has an international record of six wins and one loss in 2011. Its recent success – second place at the Yongchuan Cup in January and first place at the Cyprus Women’s Cup in March – vaulted Canada to sixth place on the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World Ranking.
In the group phase of this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup Germany 2011, Canada will face host Germany on 26 June, France on 30 June, and Nigeria on 5 July. The top two teams from the group will qualify for the quarter-final phase.
