By Rubén Morales Iglesias: A previous Breaking Belize News article reported that cyclist Derrick Ryan Chavarria, known as “Baby Chav” or the “Phenom” in cycling circles, needs assistance to help fund his education at Lees McRae College in the United States.

To that end, Chavarria has now set up a Facebook education fundraiser. His goal is to raise US$32,000. So far in one day he has raised US$630.

“I, Derrick Chavarria, have been studying for 14 years locally in Belize. Cycling is also a major part of my life, currently a cyclist for 10 years now,” said Chavarria on the fundraiser page.

“My biggest accomplishment so far in cycling being the gold medalist for the Caribbean Junior Championship in 2021 and multiple race wins and podium finishes locally.”

At 18 years of age, Chavarria, who rides locally for 501 Valvoline Cycling Team, said he aspires to race professionally.

“My vision is to become a professional cyclist someday, racing along with the pros around the world. It will also be a dream come true to represent my country well and give back where I can,” said Chavarria.

“I have been accepted to Lee’s McRae College in Banner Elk, North Carolina for the fall semester on an academic merit scholarship of $9,000USD/year which will cover a little under a quarter of the total cost. I am kindly asking the public for any financial assistance that will help me to attend Lee’s McRae.”

“Your help will be greatly appreciated. Feel free to contact me at [email protected],” he said on the fundraiser page.

Lees McRae College is a cycling college located in Banner Elk, North Carolina.
