You. Triathlon. Africa. Yes, You.
The world’s largest triathlon—500 meters swimming, 22 kilometers biking, and five kilometers running—takes place on July 21st this summer in Hamburg, Germany. Thorsten Grahn of ERF International, TWR’s Partner in Germany, will be participating, and he wants everyone to get involved.
Watch a brief video of Thorsten describing "triathlon4afrika" HERE.
The maximum time allowed to finish the triathlon is two hours and 15 minutes. Thorsten is asking for people to sponsor him by contributing a small donation for every minute in which he finishes under the maximum time.
All of the proceeds will go towards three projects:
1. The production of 52 radio programs about reconciliation in Africa.
Thorsten also challenges others to join him! For up to ten people participating in a triathlon this year, whether in Hamburg or elsewhere, he will contribute 1 Euro per minute (under the maximum time allowed) towards these same projects in Africa.
