Do you remember what you did after you graduated high school? Nicolas Chien surely will, since it involves cycling almost 3,000 miles and climbing almost 100,000 feet as he crosses North America, making his way from New York to California over four weeks while raising money for International Medical Corps and the people we help in countries around the world.
The victim of a hit-and-run accident that occurred a bit more than a year ago, Nicolas realized how lucky he was to have access to healthcare, and vowed during his recovery to help others without that access. He began “looking for a charity that provided healthcare to underserved communities around the world”—and chose International Medical Corps.
When you support Nicholas on his epic ride across America, you’ll also be supporting our work around the world providing medical services and training to women, children and men affected by conflict, disaster and disease. Whether you ride across the country is up to you!
We can’t wait to welcome Nicolas to Los Angeles and International Medical Corps headquarters in late July! Please follow his journey along with us, and tell your friends and family about it.
