Tri-ing for CV is an example of grass roots philanthropy at its best. Gregg Bienstock first became involved with The Children’s Village while serving as Chair of the Contributions Committee of his employer in 2001. An amateur triathlete, in 2005 Gregg decided to utilize his racing for a good cause and began his “Tri-ing for CV” campaign. In 2007, Gregg’s “Tri-ing” efforts were joined by Scott Gottdiener, a partner at the law firm of Latham & Watkins. Since 2005, Tri-ing for CV has raised approximately $250,000 through race pledges.
