Family Mini-Triathlon – August 18

1

July 28, 2018 by Jay Helms

As Phase 2 of “The Gnome Improvement Project,” we are hosting a Family-Friendly Mini-Triathlon at the pool in Breckenridge in Morrisville. Come join us!

There are four categories for kids or adults listed below. Relays are allowed.
The cost is $25 per person or $50 for a family. Each young participant gets a medal!

To register, pay the registration fee via PayPal to: echocommunitylife@gmail.com.
*If you can do so, give generously, even beyond the registration fee. The fee is really just a way to give to families in Ethiopia. All race costs have already been covered by separate donations. 100% of your registration donation really does go straight towards providing clean water to a village in Ethiopia. 

For More Information See Our First Giving Page: https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/WaterIsLifeEthiopia/CarlaHelms

Feel free to email us with questions, as needed, before you register.

Once you register, we will send you an information packet that will answer many questions, give guidelines, a list of things to bring, and how to plan for the race.

If you would like to register as a relay, only ONE relay team member needs to register.
