It’s fun! If your event is not listed below let us know and we will add it.

You don’t have to run, bike, or tri. Just let us know what you want to do and we will provide you with a page. Be as creative as you can be. Bowling, Lemonade Stand, Golfing, Wedding Registry, are just a few ideas.

HRTC Virtual Triathlon/Duathlon & Charity Challenge
 Anywhere you are
October 17 - November 1, 2020

I'm planning to do a sprint tri for the HRTC charity challenge. I've been doing races for COCI for several years and glad for this opportunity to do so again this year. Since I was hoping to do a few sprint triathlons this year, I decided to make this a double. I did the first one on Oct. 6 and will do the second in the last week of October.

The 1st one went well as I did my best times of the year in all three phases [400 m swim 10:02 (2:30.5 /100m), 14 mi bike 45:53 (18.3mph), 3.1 mi run 35:00 (11:18 min / mi)].

The second was cooler and windier = slower bike and faster run. [swim 9:58 (2:29.5), bike 46:49 (18.0mph), run 33:15 (10:44)].

The students need our assistance more than ever now!


Two things in life a person has no control over where one was born and who their parents are. While I am fortunate on both counts, many are not. Every child deserves a chance in life and that is what COCI is about. There are several programs throughout the world including Houston."COCI  Houston"  sponsors children of incarcerated parents (No More Victims). Something that caught my eye is the number of high school graduates from the program. Many of them probably would not have done this without help. Also, those involved with No More Victims have a very high success rate of staying out of trouble in this high-risk group.

Please consider contributing to our cause. Any amount would be great: $50, $100 or other. THANK YOU for your contribution, and thank you for caring for the COCI children!
