Mike Manatos continued his winning tradition in the annual Make-A-Wish Foundation Triathlon raising over $42,800, a record for the most raised in a single year by a participant. This brought Mike’s total amount raised for the charity to over $280,000, again a record for the most raised by an individual in the history of the event.
This was the tenth consecutive Make-A-Wish Foundation Triathlon that Mike has participated in. In addition to competing in this annual event, Mike Manatos serves on the board of directors of the Make-A-Wish Foundation Mid-Atlantic chapter.
