Many thanks to USA Today's Olympic writer Kelly Whiteside, who wrote a story about RallyMe for the cover of the Sports Section. Is it immodest to cite a quote that relates my prediction? Probably, but here it is anyway:
"In the next five years, every elite athlete or team will be using some sort of crowd-funding, predicts Bill Kerig, the founder of an online funding site for athletes, teams and sports organizations.
Kerig's site, RallyMe.Com, is partnering with six national governing bodies, including the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. A joint announcement with the association is expected this week. The site, launched last fall, is also in the process of forming alliances with other U.S. sports federations."
