Susie Rodriguez is creating A Mighty Girl

So we've started a Patreon for Cupcake. There has been interest expressed in helping keep her going as she takes the ice. 

Cupcake, for those who don't know her, is our bright, funny whirlwind of a girl. Now 7, she has been ice skating for a little over 3 years. What started as recreation has blossomed into a passion. It's also therapeutic- Cupcake is autistic and while she struggles on land, when you set her on the ice she changes. She goes from awkward and slightly off balance to confident, poised and graceful. If the ice is where she shines, the ice is where we'll put her just as often as we can.

Our mighty girl narrowed her focus and gave up hockey when she decided she wanted to be a competitive figure skater. We're letting her choose because we want her to be the happiest version of herself and we're more invested in that than in which specific path she chooses.  She is always free to go back to hockey if that's where her heart leads her, but currently she's committed to her figure skating.

At her current level of participation skating runs about $600 a month. That covers ice time anywhere from 4-6 days a week, and one hour a week of private coaching. Competition season this year came with some sticker shock. A single competition cost us anywhere from $250 to $1000 depending on location, number of categories entered, etc.

What you'll get:

There will be photos and videos and updates to the Cupcake Triumphant blog. For now the content will come largely from me talking about my girl with the understanding that more content will come from her as she gets bigger.
