blueseventy donates 10 wetsuits to tri4Japan auction

The world moves at a rapid pace and the tragedy that was the Japan tsunami quickly slips from the headlines of the world news.  But it hasn't slipped from our minds, or the minds of many other leaders in the triathlon industry.  

Tri4Japan ( is a charity established by Mike and Rieko Trees to help ease the suffering of the people of Kamaishi, a town devastated by the March Tsunami and earthquake.  As part of their fundraising program, the organisation is set to launch a major sports and triathlon charity auction on eBay beginning on Sunday evening (31st July from 19:00 BST) with over 50 items being auctioned for this great cause.

blueseventy are donating not just one, but TEN of our new positive buoyancy Axis wetsuits, so if you are in the market for a new suit, buy one from the Tri4Japan auctions and not only will you be swimming faster in blueseventy, but all your hand earned cash will go to help make life a little easier in Japan.

The auction sees a mixture of donated items ranging from Tri4Japan t shirts and posters signed by triple Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington up to high modulus carbon bike frames and top-end wetsuits as well as some fantastic World Champion and celebrity autographed collectables.

The full list of items can be found here.  

Go on - browse the auctions on ebay and get yourself a bargain and some warm-fuzzies for doing something to help out this great cause.
