LOCOs Jeremiah and Sara are back from Kona, HI where they did the Lavaman Tri! Even though wetsuits were NOT legal, they both survived the swim, and enjoyed a great day of racing!
While in Kona, they had the chance to sit down with Ironman Champion and More Than Sport founder Chris Lieto, who started More Than Sport, or MTS, out of his personal awareness of need in communities he raced in when he was a pro triathlete. Lieto recalled how he personally found motivation in giving back a few years ago. He teamed up with World Vision, which aims to get water, food and healthcare to children in need. Lieto’s goal was to get a child sponsored for any or all of the miles he raced in the 2010 Ironman World Championships. And over 140.6 miles, he managed to get over 100 children in a Kenyan village support! Talk about motivational!
