Thank you for visiting my page!
I am thrilled to be racing in the 2017 New York City Triathlon, my very first triathlon, on Sunday, July 16th and I am honored to be doing it on behalf of America Needs You.
America Needs You is a remarkable charity that provides young, ambitious people who are the first in their families to go to college, with transformative mentorship and career development.
Today, only 11% of low-income, first in their family college students complete four-year college degrees. Many leave school in good academic standing.
This charity's unique approach produces significant outcomes for high-need students. Most recent student data indicates that:
- 91% Secured employment or enrolled in graduate school within 6 months of graduation.
- 90% Secured employment in the industries of their choice.
- 96% Graduated from college within 6 years.
- More details here on the impact America Needs You makes.
Your contribution can make a huge difference.
You can ensure that these promising students not only graduate from college but that they land powerful jobs that alter the course of their lives.
Support America Needs You as I take on a triathlon with Empire TriClub to raise $5,000 for this great charity. Your generous contribution will go toward providing students with professional development grants, a key piece of what makes this program so successful and life changing. Every donation counts. Levels of support are listed below.
I'm doing this triathlon because I believe in these students, I believe in their potential and I believe in this program.
Thank you in advance for your support, spreading the word and loud cheers at the FINISH LINE!
