Carson is a fierce competitor and can come up with more puns than any kid I have ever met. He is incredibly focused on his academics and active in his school activities and groups.

Now, Carson is working with our partner, Reason2Race, to raise money for a project at the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary in honor of a family friend as he trains and races Kemah Youth Triathlon in October. You can read about it and donate here and help him reach his goal.
