This challenging, fun three-day triathlon helps to ease the pain of HIV/AIDS in Africa at the grassroots level. At each leg of the journey, participants are fully supported with food, drink, safety personnel and equipment. All you need is a bike, a bathing suit and the desire to make a significant contribution. "We really believe in this cause; money raised is sent directly to places that need it most."
Events included a 3 kilometres swim (or 15 kilometres run), a 15 kilometres canoe and a 140 kilometre cycle finishing off at the 519 Community Centre in Toronto. This is a unique event where 100% of the sponsorship money raised goes directly to the Charity selected. All money raised will support the Nikibasika Children Learning and Development Project (through CACHA) - a home for 51 vulnerable children in Kasese, Uganda who have been impacted by HIV/AIDS or civil war.
