fundraising goal: $2,000
I am participating in this years Nautica New York
City Triathlon on Sunday August 7th to raise funds
for the Children of Peru Foundation. I did the
NY Marathon a few years ago, & I represented Mexico,
my country, in the 1996 Olympics, swimming 100 & 200
backstroke, but this will be my first triathlon!
Fernando Bravo is not racing this year, but this charity
is of special significance to him & he joined forces with
the ‘Arena’ team.
The Children of Peru Foundation makes grants
to a select group of non-governmental organizations
working in Peru to provide better health-care &
education for poor children. Check out this website
for more information on their great projects.
Recently I have been traveling a lot to Peru for my
work. I learned to love the country, its people &
its culture (specially the food). I also saw the
poverty. So when Fernando & I got the opportunity to
raise money for this great cause, we decided to sign
up & help.
PLEASE support me as I race the Nautica NYC
Triathlon on August 7th, by donating to the
Children of Peru Foundation. Any donations will
be greatly appreciated.
I have donated $250 & this amount
will be matched by the Goldman Sachs Foundation.
