Anyone who has wrecked their knee knows it’s always a rough go. It’s even worse if you can’t afford the surgery. Kink BMX‘s very own Anahi Valentina is currently stuck down in Ecuador with 3 tears in her meniscus that’s keeping her off her bike and unable to travel. She’s trying to raise some funds to cover the surgery and started a GoFundMe page to help get there. You can learn more about her knee situation below!
“My name is Anahi Valentina, I come from the city of Quito Ecuador, South America. A few months ago my right knee went out of place, causing the rupture of the internal meniscus in 3 parts, the solution to this injury is surgery.
The Ecuadorian Institute of Social Security (IESS) is saturated in Ecuador, so I have no alternative but to pay the money for the operation and physiotherapy, and for now in the situation that my country is going through I find myself without work or funds to be able to afford on my own.
My biggest dream is to be the best cyclist in the world, but for that I must recover as soon as possible of this injury, so today I ask for your help to be able to resume my life and continue training for my dream, time is of the essence for an athlete and even more the recovery time.
Thank you very much for your support and motivation to keep on fulfilling my dreams…”
