All proceeds will go to Flora, Fauna & Cultura de Mexico, which is a non-profit organization in charge of conservation, protection and rescue of the natural and cultural heritage in Mexico. There will also be a benefit dinner as part of Xelha Triathlon that will be held on Sunday November 20th and the cost is $1,000.00pesos per person.
