Audrey McCarthy loves race walking and she is very good at it.

She has set her goals on the Olympics, and she has the drive to get there. She trains seven days a week, sometimes twice a day. Her Mom says when she is in a race she is in a zone, you could throw something at her and she wouldn’t even notice. Her focus and determination is impressive.

But training for any competitive sport is costly. The Dairy Farmers of Ontario have offered a $5000 grant to a lucky winner through the Fuelling Women Champions campaign. Audrey has applied and has until October 20th to rally support on social media and win the grant.

We went for a ride in my Pathfinder in this weeks MF’s Trans Canada Nissan Drive By and Audrey took me to practice with her.  I don’t think I will be making the team anytime soon 😉

Watch the video and be sure to visit her link HERE and share on social media so Audrey can win a $5000 grant to train better and improve her competitor race walking career!

As always, thank you to Trans Canada Nissan for sponsoring our Drive By series.
