Hello, I am fundraising for the Tri-Latino Juniors Team. This is a program where we take 15 teens from the Bronx Academy of Letters (BAL) and train them to complete in their first triathlon sprint (a sprint is a mini-triathlon). Here is more on the program https://www.trilatino.org/trilatino-junior-team
These deserving young adults receive many benefits from this program, including proper nutrition, fitness, and learning healthy habits at a young age so that they do not fall into unhealthy habits as they grow into adulthood. But I must share that what most excites me about this program is the personal transformation of these teens. They learn the rewards of being committed to a goal, to push past what was impossible at the beginning of their training and learn to support each other through the ups and downs of life.
Last year I was a volunteer at the Juniors’ race and I was truly inspired by these young adults. And I know that they will inspire others in their communities to live healthy and productive lives.
Funding this program will make a direct difference in their life and all of the lives they touch as they grow.
The secondary reason for my passion in the fundraising of this program, is as a memorial to my wife who we lost to cancer just over 9 years ago. She was a kindergarten teacher and children were such a hugely important part of her life. For me. this program honors her memory and continues her good work.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please donate now to help the future of our children.
Lots of Love, Greg
