Please help Raven stay at Rutgers Univ.

My name is Raven and I'm a 20 year old Junior at Rutgers University. I'm a Sports Management major and a former 400 meter hurdler with the Rutgers Women's Track & Field Team. I've been running track since I was 7.   First with Willingboro Track Club, then Winslow Elite and then my High School.

I love running the 400 meter hurdles.  I was sidelined after being unable to compete due to a hamstring injury, from my Senior year of High School, that went undetected for a year.  My freshman year I was a medical red shirt.  After meeting with several doctors and specialists, it was determined that I had Hunters Canal disease. I'm otherwise healthy mentally, physically and spiritually. I rehabbed for almost all of my sophomore year but was still unable to fully compete.  I lost the partial scholarship I was receiving at the end of my Sophomore year and I will need help to cover the costs of school for my Junior year. I've worked 2 part time jobs this summer and will continue to work two part time jobs during the school year to try to pay my way.

I love Rutgers University and I really, really want to continue my studies there. Any donation you can make is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
