Save Our Heroes-COVID Fighters Cycling Group!

My name is Yvonne Castro Perez.  I'm not just a Realtor, but a Registered Nurse as well.  Like the rest of our country, when COVID-19 was introduced to our vocabulary and forced its way into our way of life, I did what I had to do to stay sane, but what started out as a weight loss journey and mental health therapy quickly turned into a deep burning desire to do something far bigger than me, it has become a mission to help our first responders in need. 

It occurred to me when I heard the news about a friend, Justin Lee, Nurse Practitioner, who was in a coma due to COVID-19, that our Heroes who care for the ill and injured, and who protect us from threat or harm, are the very people who put themselves at risk.  2020 has brought about many challenges for our First Responders and Medical Personnel, to include high debt from extensive hospital stays, from ventilator treatments to post-hospitalization therapy, cardiac care, and funeral services. These are the heroes who give of themselves to help their communities every day, yet they are the last to ask for help when needed.

It is because of this that I have created the "COVID Fighters Cycling group".  This group has been created as a way to raise funds and give back to those Heroes who have been strongly affected by COVID-19.  The goal is to raise  $25,000 before the end of December to be divided and donated to the 100 Club of San Antonio, and to first responders and family members who show evidence of financial hardship due to the first responders' experience with COVID-19. 

By raising these funds as a community, we can help make our heroes' lives a little better until they fully recover and can get back to work or to help the family left behind by our lost heroes.  Your generous contributions to this cause are extremely appreciated by your community first responders.    

Become a hero by contributing to the COVID Fighters Cycling Group GoFundMe account.  If you can't give but would still like to support the cause, please share our page with your friends, family members, and coworkers.  With more people aware of our cause we'll be one step closer to reaching our goal.
