Fund for Carlos Alvarez and Family

On Sept 20th, a category 4-5 hurricane caused catastrophic damage in Puerto Rico as the island took a direct hit with 155 mph winds.  Hurricane Maria was the worst Hurricane to strike Puerto Rico since 1928 and resulted in the biggest catastrophe in Puerto Rican history. 3.5 million residents have virtually no power, phones or internet and must deal with flooding, damaged homes, lost businesses and a shortage of food and water.  

Open Water and Marathon swimmer, Carlos Alvarez  and his family, had severe damage to their home while the family business will be shut down for at least 3 months as the island recovers. 

Carlos is a kind, wonderful person and would quickly give anyone the shirt off his back in their time of despair. Although Carlos is a proud man and would never ask, he and his family need our help.  A donation in any amount would go a long way towards rebuidling their lives and getting this amazing family back on their feet.

100% of the donations received will be used to purchase basic living necessities while the family is out of work and contirbute toward repairs on the family home. Thank you for your consideration.
