THE STORY:

I'd really appreciate your support as I "race" in the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon this July to support my good friend's charity.

The cause

First, the important stuff. The charity I'm "racing" for is East Africa Children's Hope (EACH). I promise: it's a bona fide, do-good, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity.

So you're probably thinking: "Hey, wait a minute! Gerry never sent me any pictures of him giving hope to children in East Africa." And you'd be right. Cause I've never been to Africa. I hope to go one day. But who knows when that will be. In the meantime, I can do something to help - today. And so can you.

EACH does a lot of good work, supporting vulnerable, orphaned, and destitute children by promoting self-sustainability among locally-led schools and orphanages. Please check out all the great things EACH is doing at its website: http://eastafricachildrenshope.org.

The "race"

Now to the actual "race." You may have noticed I keep referring to the "race" by using quotation marks. That's because about the only thing that will be racing during the triathlon is my heart rate as I try to swim the Hudson River. As you can see in the photos, my 4-year old son is the superior racer in the familly! If I actually make it out of the water after 1,500 meters, it's a 40k bike ride down the West Side highway, and a 10k run through Central Park. This is an Olympic triathlon, and the closest I'll ever come to competing in anything Olympic-like.

The close

To be honest, the main reason I support this organization is because my friend, Melanie, founded EACH. There are thousands of great causes and organizations, but only one founded on Melanie's love, vision, dedication, and sacrifice. She believes in EACH. And I believe in her. And I trust you believe in me.

Thanks for your support.
