Teach a man to fish...

On Sunday, July 26th, 2009, I will complete Ironman USA in Lake Placid, NY. (Ironman is a multisport endurance event consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run). As a member of RaceWithPurpose.Org, I am combining my passion for community service with athletic performance and working toward something bigger than myself.

My goal this year is to raise funds to serve kids who struggle because of poverty and disadvantaged educational systems. In particular, I will support efforts in Youth Financial Literacy Education through World of Money, a 501(c)3 charitable organization.


I truly believe that by teaching kids to approach their finances responsibly we can have a lifelong positive impact on them, their families and communities.

WorldOfMoney.Org is committed to prepare under served youth for real world financial responsibility. The Money Track curriculum includes: wealth consciousness, disciplined savings, stock market investment, bank accounts, real estate investing, mutual funds, credit and mortgages, house-hunting and business etiquette. The Summer Financial Literacy Training Institute was launched in 2006 with its mission to give young people empowering tools to survive life’s economic roller-coasters.

The training will serve 75 young people, ages 11-17, over three weeks at The Beacon School in Manhattan. Each youth will receive a Certificate of Completion, book bag and school supplies at the graduation ceremony in August of 2009.

The Money Track curriculum focuses on financial literacy and financial responsibility.
