We started off 2015 with a beautiful day in Waunakee! Over 500 kids participated in this year’s event, raising just shy of $15,000 to support healthy schools for children in our community.
Thank you to our amazing sponsors, especially our presenting and gold level sponsors, the Waunakee Village Center, Waunakee Community School District, TDS, Meriter & Physicians Plus, Culver’s, and the Waunakee Rotary, for making this year’s event possible!
One stat I’m particularly proud of is the fact that we had over 25% of our attendees participate as part of our scholarship program, many of our whom also joined in our Exercise to Achievement after-school program this spring. It’s incredibly important for all children to have access to healthy opportunities and the life skills that accompany athletics, which is a big piece of our mission here at Tri 4 Schools.
I’m also extremely grateful to all the volunteers, as well as Waunakee EMS, Police, and Public Works, for making this event safe and smooth for all our children. We had many first-time volunteers join us this year, and we rely on their involvement to keep our races running at a high quality level.
We hope you’ll let us know if there are ways we can continue to improve the event, and we look forward to seeing all our triathletes at the Middleton triathlon presented by Middleton Sports and Fitness on August 22nd!
