This will be my 4th year conquering the Chicago Triathlon with the Renew Chicago Triathlon Team. Over the years, the team has raised $225k+ in an effort to support Renew Chicago's ministry partners such a Breakthrough Urban Ministries, Safe Families for Children, and several more local non-for-profits. Much of this is due in large part to you, those reading this story and willing to click on the "Support Me" button. Will you consider supporting again?


On a personal note, this year is guaranteed to be more special than past years for two BIG reasons. First, exactly two weeks after the Chicago Triathlon I will be racing my first 70.3 Ironman in Madison, WI under the Renew Chicago banner (postponed from 2020). The donation drive and this page will remain active through that race  - as will my fundraising efforts. Second, but certainly not least, this year on Saturday of the Chicago Triathlon weekend, I will become a Triathlon Coach as my son Tristan Luis Davila races in his first Chicago Kids Triathlon also as part of the Renew Chicago Triathlon Team. It has been an honor and a blessing to watch Tristan's desire to race for charity grow as a he has spectated my races over the years. More than anything else this year, I look forward to cheering him on and watching him cross the finish line as I excitedly await giving him a big hug! Please check out Tristan's Story & Fundraising Page.


Once again, this couldn't be done without you! If you have read this far, please consider supporting our efforts. Any donations or prayers you would be generous enough to provide would be so much appreciated. For more information on Breakthrough or Renew Chicago, please visit the links and videos below.
