Can you help?

GMax.co.za received this plea all the way from Canada —
My name is St�phane Vachon, I am 36 years old. I am a Gay Games IV double gold medallist in figure skating representing Team Montr�al. I have decided to take the little boy by the hand who was so ashamed of himself because of what he always wanted to be. Today, I want to give him the chance to fulfil his dream. So after a few years of bitterness with my first love, figure skating, I am finally back on my skates. Nothing makes me happier than being on the ice.
There are now great opportunities for adult skaters like me to compete at an International level. This is what I want to do now.
So here are some of the competitions I want to attend in the near future: Canadian Adults Nationals in Charlottetown, (P-E-I.) from March 31 to April 3 2005. The ISU Adults World Championships in Oberstdorf, Germany from June 10 to June 12 2005. There will be other great international competitions like: Mountain Cup in Villard-de-Lans, France, from May 30 to June 3 2005 and Fabulous Cup in Cologne, Germany, from June 28 to July 1 2005.
And will be in my hometown of Montreal in 2006, from July 29 to august 6: The first World OutGames! And Gay Games VII in Chicago, from July 15 to July 22 2006.
I have created a personal web site to raise enough money for me to train, compete and to fulfill my dream in figure skating.
So I invite you all to visit me at: http://svonice.com/.
I thank you in advance to contribute to my ultimate dreams in figures skating and to help me live my passion for a long time to come..
So perhaps you can help?
