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.

Thanks for supporting COCI in making a difference.         

Onalaska Triathlon
 Onalaska, TX
September 11, 2016

Since bone chips at my heel havn't allowed me to run, I decided to do a half ironman aquabike for my COCI race. For those unfamiliar with this, it is a 1.2 mile swim followed by a 56 mile bike ride and no running. I wanted to do something for distance this year, and here it is.

It went well!!! Finished with a better time than my previous aquabike. Rehab has worked well enough to begin running again.


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 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.

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!
