A Treadmill for Kristiona to keep active

Posted Nov 29, 2020
Kristiona has had a difficult time during this pandemic due to medical issues that keep her from being able to go on her walks and get out of her apartment. She recently had COVID-19 and has since recovered but needs to stay inside and continue quarantining. A treadmill would help her stay active and physically fit while maintaining her health.

Kristiona is 28 years old and lives in CO

Originally, Kristiona was placed in Foster Care at the age of two where she was adopted, only to again be bounced around from foster home to foster home at the age of nine. She was adopted and then returned to foster care where she aged out. Kristiona became independent and started her college journey and has been successful at it despite everyday obstacles and medical issues. Kristiona has graduated from CMU with her Bachelor's degree and is looking at continuing her education to work with children. She currently works with an early head start preschool as a teacher and enjoys every moment. Kristiona is committed to breaking a generational cycle of abuse and lack of education. Her ultimate goal is to own and run a summer camp for children in foster care, that is not only fun, but can also provide them with therapeutic and mentoring supports.
