Fatboy can’t swim
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
In memory of Soruban Rajakulendran: Dad to three young women.
In support of the Women’s Banking Network project.
On September 29th, I’ll be doing my first Triathlon in Singapore. As of June, I could only swim 20 metres. This Triathlon will require a 1,500m open water swim, 40km bike and 10km run, all in the blazing hot Singapore sun.
I’m looking to raise $10,000 for the Women’s Banking Network project supporting 110 women over 5 years (who in turn support over 500 people). Teaching women financial literacy skills and giving them access to low interest emergency funds gives them a voice in the household and sets them on a path to independence and continual growth, breaking the cycle of aid. Helping women with finance initiatives is one of the most effective ways to lift families out of poverty.
Give what you can. Bet with me, against me, or laugh at me. It’s all for a good cause.
I’m aiming for less than 4hrs with a stretch goal of less than 3hrs 30mins.
Sorbs sadly passed in July. But anyone who knew him, knew he was the #1 supporter of anything people put themselves into – business, investments, fitness, or charity. “Good work, keep it up” was his motto.
