Juan Borchardt:

My fundraising goal: $2,000

Hi! Thanks for visiting this site. As you know, Iím challenging myself in the Nautica NYC Triathlon this year and Iím partnering with the Children of Peru Foundation in order to help raise funds for the poor kids in Peru.

I travel quite often to Lima and have lots of great Peruvian friends. I love their food, their culture, and their amazing natural wonders (Machu Pichu, Alpamayo, Nazca, Asia (great surfing and night life)). But above all, I love their people; Peruvians are open, gentle, warm, friendly, they themselves love their own culture and take pride of being part of such a great nation; so this partnership with the Children of Peru Foundation is a great opportunity for me and you to thank them for such a wonderful country and help the children in need.

As many other countries in Latin America, Peru has still a lot to do in the social front. Many kids donít get access to basic stuff that would be normal for you and me, such as basic medical assistance. Anywhere you travel in Latin America you see shanty towns and millions of people in need and you ask yourself: what can I do to help them? You feel like it is too much and there is nothing you can doÖ Well, let me tell you that nobody expects you or me to solve the problem, but hereís a chance to become a tiny part of the solution, here is a chance to transform our money in someoneís better health, and better life.

I am donating $300 and would like you to join me in this noble cause.

As a way of background, The Children of Peru Foundation is an organization that provides funding for programs in Peru such as the Medical Mission For Children (MMFC), which provides surgical and dental services to children with cleft lip and palates among other health issues; Samusocial Peru, an organization that provides mobile medical assistance to underprivileged areas in Peru; as well as other projects.

Hope you will be able to contribute to this effort and join the excitement as a spectator on race day (August 7th).
