America Needs You (ANY) enables high-potential, low-income, first-generation college students to realize their professional and personal ambitions. As a first generation college student myself, raising money for a cause such as this seems like a no-brainer. As a result of this fundraiser, I will be doing the biking portion of the New York City Triathlon. I have not been very active since injuring my knee during the Paris marathon back in April, as I continue to recover from knee surgery I had in late May. I am very eager to race 40 kilometers through the streets of the city I call home!
