There is no doubt the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on this nation changed many views.
For Efrain Guerrero Jr. of Imperial, it persuaded him to consider changing his career.
Guerrero is a physical therapist assistant at the El Centro Physical Therapy and a cycling enthusiast.
Guerrero said the attacks on the United States made him consider changing his career to a field where he can help people in need, no matter the situation.
"I want to help people that have been struck by tragedy, no matter the situation," said Guerrero.
He will start Saturday by combining his love of cycling and his desire to help.
Guerrero will ride his bicycle from Brawley to Calexico all day in hopes of raising funds for the United Way Sept. 11 fund.
"I just want to help," he said.
Guerrero originally considered riding his bicycle to New York and raising funds along the way, but soon learned that idea had already been taken.
