Trifor3 is an effort to help pay for college for a deceased friend's children. He was killed in a horrible car accident, so I'm using my triathlons to motivate people to contribute to his 3 children's 529 savings.

My dear friend Sabry was killed in a traffic accident in October 2009.  A classic entrepreneur, Sabry poured his heart, soul and savings into his successful software company. His untimely death has put a financial and emotional strain on his wife and the three kids. The purpose of this fundraiser is to help address an obvious and important need: paying for their college.

The Trifor3 fund is a 529 college savings account that I am managing on the 3 children's behalf.  For those who don't know, 529s are special purpose investment accounts that ensure the money is used only for educational purposes.

The oldest child is already a high school junior, so we're kicking off the fund with a 2010 goal of $10,000, of which we're hoping to raise $2,000 here online.  I'm planning to do 4 triathlons this year, so I'm asking everyone to decide how much you can contribute and then multiply it by 4!!!
