Welcome to Janice’s fundraising page in support of She Can Tri's #TeamAfghanistan!
Janice is raising money as she prepares to race in an IRONMAN 70.3 in Marbella, Spain in April.
But why for She Can Tri? We asked Janice.
I lived in Dubai for many years before moving to Andalusia, Spain, and opening Los Olivos Cycling and Triathlon Training Camp (LOCTTC) with my husband, Julio. Over the years I have competed in many triathlon events in Dubai and internationally. I have competed in several IRONMAN 70.3 races, coming first in my age group in Singapore, and Dubai. In addition, I have completed three IRONMANs in New Zealand, South Africa and Spain, coming second in my age group in the Spanish race.
As a She Can TriAthlete, I wanted to bring together my passion and interest in sports to help individuals compete in triathlon who might not otherwise have the chance - together and across borders we will be racing for equality.
She Can Tri
We believe in empowerment through athletics because when women see what they can achieve in sports they start pushing boundaries in other areas of their life as well.
She Can Tri, in partnership with Free to Run, is training four women as Afghanistan’s first women triathletes. Finding ways for females to safely and freely engage in outdoor activity allows them to change views about the roles that women could, and should, play in society. The first women triathletes in Afghanistan have a chance to empower women throughout the country to be a part of the solution within their own communities and the country at large.
All funds raised will help She Can Tri continue its mission and get our Afghan She Can TriAthletes across the finish line.
She Can Tri operates in partnership with Free to Run, a 501(c)(3). Free to Run works to support women and girls in conflict areas through adventure sports to build their physical, emotional, and social well being to develop them into community leaders so they can bring people together across cultural, ethnic, and religious lines.
Another way to help is to spread the word of She Can Tri.
