Welcome to my fundraising page! This is my second experience of grassroots fundraising for a GREAT cause. My first experience was during the Summer of 2013 where I raised over $450 for the next class of interns at the School of Unity and Liberation. Thank you to those who donated! I STILL remember and think of you. You really helped the next class of interns afford housing, transportation, stellar social justice workshops, and overall cherished life experiences.
Now, I am fundraising for Children's Hospital Los Angeles! I currently work in the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine. I am the Health Communications Coordinator, housed within the Center for Strengthening Youth Prevention Paradigms. If you didn't know, my life is focused on social justice and advocacy. I strive to live an intentional life geared towards decolonizing the minds of our young people so our future can become a more equitable and sustainable place!
Today, YOU have an amazing chance to contribute to cutting-edge pediatric cancer research being done at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. 100% of all donations that I receive will go towards this! You have the opportunity to make a difference (no matter how small or large) to uplift children's and young people's lives for a brighter future. On top of that, you are also supporting me in my personal goal of accomplishing a solo 17 mile bike ride with my amazing relay team at the 2017 Nautica Malibu Triathlon! To show my appreciation for your donation, I will send you a personal handmade card in return.
Understandably, my participation in a traithlon is seen as a privileged opportunity. I am blessed to be able-bodied and well enough to train and endure this adventure. I'm hoping to build myself both physically and mentally, as well as create a closer bond with my coworkers as we struggle in this adventure together.
I hope you are persuaded to donate to my fundraiser! Donate for pediatric cancer research. Donate for Children's Hospital LA. Donate for supporting your fellow comrade in her personal journey. Most importantly, donate to a brighter and more sustainable future for our young people!
