James Perkins:

My fundraising goal: $2,400
Total raised so far:   $2,090

It's hard to imagine living in poverty and growing up without access to basic medical care or education, but this is the reality for more than half the population of Peru. More disturbing still according to UNICEF almost 60% of all children in Peru live in either poverty or extreme poverty.
It is my pleasure to participate in the 2012 New York City Triathlon to help raise funds for the Children of Peru Foundation. The Children of Peru Foundation is dedicated to providing better healthcare and educational opportunities for these children while raising awareness of their dire situation.

Itís impossible to change the world overnight but if we all help a little, collectively we can make a big difference.

If you are willing and able to contribute to our fundraising efforts in any way; no matter how small, you would be giving these children access to basic healthcare and education; a chance for a better tomorrow.
