  2. 2.  Some*mes  the  journey  is  more  about  the  roads   you   take   instead   of   the   challenges   you   face.     For   Sean   VanGerena   ‘89   his   journey   began   in   November   2008   following   a   serious   car   accident.     Sean   suffered   a   trauma*c   brain   injury(TBI),   a   broken   neck,   mul*ple   strokes,   and   several   other   injuries.     Ader   months   of   therapy   this   alumnus   went   from   walker   to   marathon   and   hasn’t   looked   back.     Instead   he   has   eyes   on   Rio   2016   where   Paratriathlon   will   make   its   debut   in   the   Paralympics  Games  in  Brazil.    Inspired  by  his  family,  friends,  and  peers  Sean,  a   T3   Ambulatory   Parapalegic,   has   persevered   to   finish   race   ader   race   since   2009   including   the   Boston   Marathon   in   2011   and   most   recently   represen*ng   the   USA   at   the   2013   ITU   Sprint   World   Championship   triathlon  in  London.                  Sean’s  will  to  outrun  adversity  is  a  testament  to   how   mind   over   body   can   not   only   lead   him   down   the   road  to  health,  but  to  inspire  others  through  community   outreach   and   advocacy.     He   is   ac*ve   with   Challenged   Athletes   Founda*on,   Achilles   Interna*onal   and   the   Wounded  Warrior  Project  ,  all  of  which  led  him  to  found   the   non-­‐profit   organiza*on   Lie   Down   or   Stand   Up!   His   organiza*on   is   dedicated   to   rehabilita*on   and   training   with   a   mission   to   provide   health   and   wellness   programs   for  people  with  disabili*es.  Follow  Sean’s  journey  at   hMp://       If   the   road   ader   gradua*on   has   taken   you   to   a   college  or  university  campus,  life  can  be  full  of  exci*ng   opportuni*es   and   new   challenges.         Support   from   home   comes   in   many   different   forms:   a   phone   call   from   dad,   an   email   from   a   high   school   friend,   or   home-­‐baked  cookies  from  mom.    Nothing  warms  the   heart   and   soul   of   a   college   student   far   from   home   beaer  than  a  care  package.        The  founders  of  Regaalo  have  taken  the  no*on   of  the  tradi*onal  care  package  for  college  students  to   a   new   level.   This   NH   based   start-­‐up   company   co-­‐ founded   by   CBNA   graduate   Ma=hew   Robinson   ’05   hosts   an   online   marketplace   that   provides   local   merchant  gids,  college  supplies  and  care  packages  for   students.     What   began   with   local   reach   surrounding   the   UNH   campus   in   2011,   now   has   an   expanded   merchant   base   to   include   na*onal   partnerships   for   3,000   colleges   and   11   million   students   across   the   country.     Families   and   friends   of   college   students   can   order   care   packages   filled   with   local   products   and   college   supplies   or   gid   cer*ficates   from   campus   area   merchants.     How   about   a   gid   card   to   the   campus   coffee   house   or   a   month   of   unlimited   tanning   at   the   local  salon?
