Dear friends,
Yes, it’s true! Eddy is in fact going to compete in the Rainbow Warriors Cup Triathlon on June 22nd! He’s doing it again this year for the second time with Team HOPE so that people with disabilities can have access to occupational therapy, speech-language therapy and audiology in order to achieve their fullest potential. He has committed to swimming 750m, riding 20K and then running 5K in blazing hot sun in Tobago!!

I have committed alongside him to help him raise $5,000 to support TTOTA (Trinidad and Tobago Occupational Therapy Association) and SLAATT (Speech-Language and Audiology Association of Trinidad and Tobago) in our missions to raise public awareness of the need for occupational therapy, speech-language therapy and audiology services in our country, to create informed ambassadors for people with special needs and to raise enough funds to support several initiatives of both associations.

I thank you for your past support of Eddy’s and my efforts in this venture in the past years and we look forward to your kind support again this year. Please just inbox me or post your pledge and I'll track you down! :) This request is coming to you late and urgently because despite Achilles tendon tears, shoulder disruption and plain old age (I did not say old age! I said plain old … age!) Eddy is doing the whole thing himself (without me doing the 5k run leg thank God!).

Monies raised through Team Hope will be allocated to the following:
Educational and Professional Development (continuing education, hosting and attending conferences, bringing in educators, workshops)
Public Awareness Campaign (brochures, websites, booths, conferences)
Bursary Fund for national occupational therapy students

The link below explains Eddy and my journey with Team HOPE (and why I'm not racing this year. :( I am so grateful Eddy can carry on holding the torch for us on this very important venture for our country. Thanks for helping us out!!
