2nd Annual Hope Through Health Solana Beach Triathlon - SoCal Chapter
Join Team Hope Through Health on for the Sprint Triathlon, and help support people living with HIV/AIDS in Togo, West Africa. We invite you to participate in the event as a fundraising opportunity to help raise money for an important cause, while also challenging yourself mentally and physically!
This is a sprint-length triathlon hosted by KOZ Enterprises, which can be done individually or as a team, and will be held in Solana Beach, California. For individuals that have never participated in a sprint triathlon, the event is a combination of a 1/4 mile ocean swim, 9 mile bike, and 3 mile run. There is a also a duathlon option for the non-swimmers out there, which is a 1 mile run, 9 mile bike and 3 mile run. If you are a beginner or need a little help training, not to worry -- Hope Through Health has arranged for special classes and clinics just for those participating in helping to fundraise for the organization.
After competing, either as an individual or in a relay (...or as a cheerleader), we invite participants, friends, family and other guests to come celebrate and learn more about the mission and vision of Hope Through Health at Yogi's Bar & Grill in Cardiff, just down the road from the triathlon. All participants and guests are welcome! Yogi's will generously be providing free food and drink specials, with an awards ceremony and raffle taking place toward the end of the event.
We hope you'll consider taking the challenge to help support Hope Through Health by participating and fundraising in the Solana Beach Triathlon this year!

Hope Through Health was created in 2004 through the experience and shared vision of brothers Thomas Fiori and Kevin Fiori, Jr. and colleague Dr. Peter Davenport. In December 2003 United States Peace Corps Volunteers, Kevin Fiori and Peter Davenport, began collaborating with a community of people living with HIV/AIDS in Kara, Togo called Association Espoir pour Demain-Lidaw (AED-Lidaw). With the help of Thomas Fiori and Dawn Fiori, this collaboration inspired the creation of Hope Through Health (HTH), a Massachusetts based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
Today, Hope Through Health and AED-Lidlaw provide support to over 2,000 individuals living in Togo through 4 clinics and 95 staff members. By providing medical education, nutritional assistance, ARV medications and programs to help mother to child HIV/AIDS transmission Hope Through Health is making a difference in lives of those living with HIV/AIDS in Togo, West Africa. We invite you to learn more about this organization and the cause we support at www.hthglobal.org.
