2012 IRONMAN US Championship NY/NJ - August, 2012

   Triathlete Cory Lester:        

                                          My fundraising goal:  $4,000
                                          Amount raised so far: $6,522



Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I'm participating in the 2012 Ironman US Championship NY/NJ on Aug 11th, 2012 to raise money for the Children of Peru Foundation and I'd like to kindly ask for your support. My goal is to raise $4000 and all contributions regardless of amount are greatly appreciated. I've participated in a variety of triathlons, marathons and bike races over the years, but this is by far the most grueling (2.4 mi swim / 112 mi bike / 26.2 mi run) event to date and I wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't for a great cause.


The Children of Peru Foundation was founded in 2006 and is a U.S. not-for-profit organization dedicated to building a better future for poor children in Peru. Money is raised to make grants to a select group of non-governmental organizations working in Peru to provide better healthcare and education for poor children. Having studied, traveled and worked extensively in South America over the years, I've always had a soft-spot in my heart for the region and only thought it natural to get involved when a long-time colleague who's affiliated with the organization brought the opportunity to my attention.

I'm currently in the final phase of a three-part, 30-week training program and I must say mentally preparing for this race is about as difficult if not more so than the physical element of it; and, in that respect, I am extra appreciative and thankful for your support.

Please join me to raise funds for the Children of Peru Foundation.
