Physique competitor, fitness enthusiast and 35-year-old mother of two, Nicole Janveaux, will be competing as part of Team BC in a National Level World Qualifying Event August 9 in Winnipeg.

This show also qualifies her to represent Canada at the World’s. The goal is to then go on to compete in the North American Championships at the end of August, in Pittsburg where she would represent Canada.

“The larger goal I hold for myself is to one day step on stage at Olympia,” Janveaux said. “I am dedicated and driven to obtaining my goal, and always strive to be the best that I can.”

As she gets closer to stepping on stage and representing B.C., Janveaux is looking for a few local sponsors to help with some of the associated costs of competing at an event like this. Some of the costs are travel (flight), hotel, prep, as well as meals. The goal is to raise $3,500.

“Any donation monetary or otherwise would be greatly appreciated.  We will be holding a number of various fundraisers in the next few weeks,” Janveaux said.

One of the events is a Garage Sale and Silent Auction on 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 26-27 and 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Sunday, July  27.

They are accepting donations for the Garage Sale as well as the Auction. Donations can be dropped off at the CR Storm Gym, 740 Robron between the hours of 4:30-8:30 p.m. during weekdays or Saturday from 8-12 or Janveaux can be contacted to arrange pickup/drop outside of those times.

“We will also be doing a Wall of Wine at this event – if you may be interested in participating pls contact me, or you can check it out on Facebook,” Janveaux said. “I currently train six days a week.  Fitness and bodybuilding in particular is a huge part of my life, it encompasses who I am. I have committed everything to this journey. I hope to empower others, to show them it’s not what you have been through, but the path you choose in life.  I am determined, strong, passionate, and hardworking. Anything I do, I do 100 per cent.”

Janveaux was recently in the Cardillo Fab 4 contest to become their next spokesmodel.  Out of 54 women from all over North America (and the only Canadian) - she came in third place.  Reach her at nicole.janveaux@gmail.com or by phone 250-204-0985 if you have any questions.
