2013 LAKE TAHOE IRONMAN - September 22, 2013

   Triathlete Mike Moses:        

         My  fundraising  goal: $5,000
         Amount raised so far: $5,668.60

Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,

I am very excited to announce that I will be competing in the Ironman Lake Tahoe competition on Sunday, September 22, 2013. This triathlon will be my first at the Ironman distance, which is a 2.4 mile swim and 112 mile bike, followed by a 26.2 mile run. Just registering for this competition is a huge step, and this is something that I have thought about for over 10 years. For me, the Ironman is the ultimate test of human endurance. It is something that has drawn me for so many years and now it is finally here.

As part of Ironman Lake Tahoe, I am being sponsored by a not-for-profit organization called the Children of Peru Foundation (childrenofperu.org). As part of this sponsorship, I need to raise $5,000 for their cause. Headquartered in New York, the Foundation currently works with grass-root organizations in Peru assisting with education and medical assistance.

So you may ask, why Peru?... and for that I have many responses:

As a Father of Two, I love the fact that this kids organization serves underprivileged kids only.
As a PTA Board Member for our local school, I am reminded often how a little money makes the difference for our kids in the classroom.
As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, I know firsthand that even the smallest dollar amount goes a very long way in the poorest of regions.

In many respects, I see this Ironman experience as two-fold. One, I see it as a great personal experience to complete one of the toughest triathlons on the planet. And two, I see this as an opportunity to make the world just a little bit smaller. I know you will donate what you can, but if you wanted to donate a $1 a mile, that would be $140.60!!!!

Here are some ways to support my run and a great cause:
