U.S. Figure Skating estimates that the trip will cost about $11,000 for one attendee, according to the club, which means that Mirai and her family are looking at a cost of $33,000 in order to ensure that her mother, Ikuko, and father, Kiyoto, who own a sushi restaurant called Kiyosuzu, as well as her boyfriend, are able to travel.
'We want to make sure that anybody Mirai needs to be there with her, including her family and her boyfriend, is able to afford the trip and be there for her!' the organization added.
So far, the fundraiser has garnered $11,002 from 141 supporters, who have been leaving encouraging comments for Mirai.
