Every day that has come and gone since volunteering in
Peru has been a day that I have dreamt of returning to
continue giving back to these communities that are so
loving, welcoming and giving. With a return trip not
possible in the foreseeable future, I am determined to
continue raising awareness and money for those that are
in such desperate need of education and medical
With this said, I have made the decision to participate
in the 2012 New York City Triathlon in
partnership with, and by raising money for the
Children of Peru Foundation. This Foundation is a
very highly focused charity that is supporting amazing
work throughout the same regions I volunteered in just a
few months ago.
Below are three causes that your donations will be
supporting through the Children of Peru Foundation:
1) Medical Missions for Children – dedicated to
providing quality surgical and dental services to poor
and under privileged children.
2) Manos Unidas – scholarship funding for the
first private school for special needs children in Cusco.
3) Samusocial Peru – based in Huaycan (shantytown
near Lima), this organization supports two local
ambulances, providing local and immediate medical
assistance, and the support of a local school.
Having directly experienced the incredible need within
these communities I know the huge benefits that come
from even the smallest donation. I am so very thankful
for every dollar donated and can assure you that the
communities you will be supporting will be more thankful
than you could ever imagine.
There are two methods by which you can sponsor my
NYC Triathlon participation and support this
