Aaron Davis:

My fundraising goal: $2,200
Total raised so far:   $2,531

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 services.

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 wonderful cause:

1 Click the link below to make a donation online through PayPal. You will get an email notification once you submit your donation, however, it will take about 24 hours to view your donation on the site.

2 Send a check made payable to Children of Peru Foundation (with Aaron Davis written on the memo line) to:
Children of Peru Foundation
340 East 64th St. Suite 2G, New York, NY 10065

Sorry, no cash donations!

I will be sure to keep you all updated on my training progress as I continue down the path towards my first Triathlon!

Thanks a lot for your help and support!
