Team Save the Children

tsc_difference_blog_350x210

I am participating in the Life Time Tri Minneapolis Triathlon on July 8th, 2017 and raising money to support the amazing work of Save the Children!

Making this journey even more meaningful is that I’m doing this in memory of Olivia Ann Christiano, who was born a sleeping angel to my good friends Robbie and Alisha. As a friend, it’s often hard to find the words to say during a time of loss. That’s when I decided I could use my triathlon hobby as a platform to raise money in honor and memory of Olivia to make a positive impact in the lives of children around the globe.

Millions of children throughout the world face chronic malnutrition, die from preventable illnesses, or are vulnerable to exploitation, violence or neglect. Save the Children saves countless lives by providing food assistance, medical care, education and disaster relief assistance. And nearly 90% of expenses goes to programs.

I have pledged to raise at least $500, and I need your help to get there. Please contribute whatever you feel comfortable with and share this page with others. Because together, we can make a difference in the world and honor Olivia’s memory.
