The triathlon tour is a chance to every single child no matter what\nbackground he or she comes from. I am trying to connect two worlds, which were\nsplit by our society even everyone deserve to have the same start to life. I\nprovide own equipment – bikes and helms - so everyone who’s passing by can participate  - not just those who can afford to pay\nfortune for registration. I want all the children can try triathlon as it’s an\namazing sport. I just give the chance I didn’t get when I was a child. \n\n \n\nBACKGROUND\n\nTomas Slavata is a thirty-five years\nold athlete and patron of children. His life journey began unusually - on the\nstreet and in a troubled family. In spite of all uneasy life moments, sport and\npositive motivation miraculously helped him to succeed and become very unique in\nthe field of charity. At the age of 21, after tedious negotiation and\nobstacles, he adopted his two nephews who were placed in an orphanage after\nTomas’ sister failed as a mother and ended up as drug addicted. Over ten years\nhe raised them in the same household. In 2014, he adopted another child from\norphanage in Vysoka Pec – Dominik, who’s now 15 years old.\n\n \n\nOUR ACTION\n\n·   Technical and financial support so everyone can participate for free\n\n·   Choosing proper place for the race – building the base, registration,\ncourses\n\n·   Dividing participants to 12 categories\n(girls/boys – 0-6; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13-15; 16-18)\n\n·   Providing refreshment, bicycles, helmets for contestants\n\n·   Winners obtain certificates, sweets, medals and t-shirts with Slavata\nTriatlon Tour logo and branding\n\n·   4 mountain bicycles are\nfortuitously allotted at the end of each day so\neveryone has equal chance to win something (600 MTB given so far)\n\n·   Financially independent (private finance from selling a flat, friends\nhelp, short-term sponsors)\n\n·   40 visits to orphanages and schools – presenting the inspiring life\nstory of Tomas himself, talking to kids, listening to their stories\n\n·   One-week fully\ntraining camp for winners of the final\nSlavata Triatlon Tour race – providing accommodation, equipment, meals;\norganized in cooperation with friends or short term sponsors (Italy, Czech\nRepublic)\n\n \n\nSPORTS USED\n\nSwimming, mountain bike riding, running X-MS-OLK-FORCEINSPECTOROPEN:TRUE BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTAMP:20200920T114901Z DTSTART:20170509T100000Z DTEND:20170509T100000Z TRANSP:TRANSPARENT UID:10002017-05-09 SUMMARY:SLAVATA TRIATHLON TOUR DESCRIPTION:TARGET GROUP:\n\n•   children and young people aged 0 -18 from different backgrounds –\norphanages, socially deprived families\n\n•   we are looking for children who need to be supported  – not support those ones  who look for help and beg for money\n\n \n\nIMPACT:\n\n•   3 000 children and people annually (parents, families and orphanages)\nwho visit events\n\n•   events influence everybody who participate \n\n \n\nPROJECT LEADERS:\n\n•   Tomas Slavata – Czech philanthropist\n\n \n\n \n\nPEACE AND SPORT’S ROLE:\n\n“Slavata Triathlon Tour is an opportunity to get\nchildren coming from orphanages, families and schools to interface with each\nother.
