From the shores of Sao Paulo state four athletes are mobilized to achieve their dream of going to the World Triathlon (ITU) in Mexico next September. Fader Müller, Jefferson Oliveira, Luiz Felipe and Nicholas Cruz are qualified (double qualified) to participate as amateurs and represent Brazil in the event.
Without resources to do so (this is already the fourth time they qualify) they decided to seek collective financing (crowdfunding) via Benfeitoria. Benfeitoria is an innovative platform that has helped artists, researchers, social activists and now innovates once again supporting a sports initiative.
Well, these athletes are offsprings of Pro-Talentos a NGO. So it does have a social side to it all as well. After all, this whole experience will be passed on to other athletes of the institution. The four mentioned here are Paulista Triathlon champions, Brazilian and Pan American also. Actually, for this very reason they are qualified for the World Cup.
Now the target is to mobilize as many people as possible to make the project viable. You who read us can support collaborating, disseminating and monitoring the progress of this story. What is undoubtedly very interesting and learning for all.
At Benfeitoria is all or nothing. Five targets have been programmed, the first of which will enable only two athletes to be sent, in the second target three and so on until the final target which is the whole team. But all or nothing means that if, for example, they do not reach the first target, which is 16,000.00 reais, all those who helped will receive their money back.
This entlitles the project with seriousness and great commitment. So, if they get ten thousand, for example, it failed… ten thousand will be back into the hands of Benefactors.
