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.

Thanks for supporting COCI in making a difference.         

Ironman 70.3 Texas
 Galveston, TX
April 26, 2015

The PRP treatment worked on my knees and now that I can run again, it's time to step up to my first half ironman triathlon.

The knees were good and finished my first (and probably only) 70.3. 


Two things in life a person has no control over are where one was born and who the 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 Inc.). Something that caught my eye is the number 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.
