Tristan's College & Track Fund

Hoping to Complete my Junior Year in College! Laptop needed.

I’ve made it this far—I’m a Junior at Chico State and on the track team. My passion is the 400M Hurdles and I’m determined to make nationals when the season begins in January. Training is intense and time-consuming, but I really love it. I’m taking business classes, and hoping to graduate in June 2016 with a B.S. in Business Admin. Thing is, I’m barely making it and need to pay rent for the coming months, which I simply dont have the money for.  I also have no computer and am hoping for a good condition, used Macbook. My parents don’t have the funds to help me out, and I’ve borrowed all I can for rent and tuition. Next semesters tuition is another $3,500 and If I dont scrap together that much by December I'll be dropping out. I’ve been applying for work all over town, but so far, haven't had any luck. I’m borrowing textbooks and getting as much from the library as possible. Waiting to use the computers in the library is getting impossible with my schedule, too—I really need a laptop. Any amount you can give to help me out will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your consideration and support!  -  Tristan Lake
