Ever since he was 10, Blake Hagberg of New Hartford had an interest in Luge. Once he got on a sled and went down the ice, he knew it was what he wanted to do.

Blake is a senior in high school and spends 14-18 weeks a year on ice at various tracks around the world including Lake Placid which is home to one of the most difficult tracks in the world.

Hagberg just returned from the Utah Olympic Park where he placed 4th in the Junior World Cup, his first international competition. He's now set his sights on the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea, but needs your help getting there. He's created a campaign and says he 'appreciates everyone's support in my dreams of becoming the next Luge Olympic Gold Medalist!'
