Maui Slots to Help the Philippines
Sunrise Events, organizers of the XTERRA Philippines Championship, is hosting an online auction to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda rebuild the affected areas in Tacloban, Bohol, and Cebu.
Among the items up for bid are two at-large entries into the 2014 XTERRA World Championship triathlon at Kapalua, Maui. The auction is now live and will last one week. You can bid and find more details athttp://bid.sunriseevents.com.ph/.
Other items in the auction include a Robbie McEwen Tour de France jersey, Ben Allen, Jacqui Slack, and Belinda Granger race kits, Luke McKenzie’s kit and Trucker Hat (signed), and a custom-made “I Care for the Philippines” jersey. More items will be posted shortly.
“We wanted to find a way to assist in the rebuilding efforts once the immediate needs for food and basic shelter are addressed,” said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, Chairman of Sunrise Events, Inc. “We intend to partner with Gawad Kalinga and build a small village and classrooms that will be sustainable over the long haul. We hope you will consider helping in this worthwhile and needed endeavor.”
The XTERRA Philippines Championship race itself, scheduled for March 15, 2014 at Liloan, Cebu, will open for registration on December 1 at www.xterraphil.com.
