Kids – YOU WERE AMAZING!! We had 158 kids participate and only one "boo-boo" reported at the First Aid stand!
We were totally amazed that the cooler water only revved you up to complete the new Bike Course and the Running Course with ease. Keep your eyes open for photos of the race and next years registration of the GREEN LAKE KIDS TRIATHLON.
Volunteers – YOU MADE THIS DAY A SUCCESS!!
Without each one of you, seriously, each one of you, the safety and smooth operations of this event would not be possible. Thank you. Please keep this event in consideration on next summer's calendar as we (and the kids) will need you again.
Sponsors – TWC was very proud to continue the tradition of donating $7,000 to an organization that also promotes a healthy lifestyle for kids.
Children of the Promise is a non-denominational Christian organization started in 1999 by Bud and Jan Bonnema, a Minnesota couple. COTP is dedicated to caring for the physical, emotional, medical, and spiritual needs of sick and malnourished infants/toddlers in Northern Haiti.
The vision for the next 10 years in Haiti is to set a new standard. COTP believes children deserve "the best" no matter where they are born. COTP still believes that there is no replacement for a healthy, loving home; and it will be their goal to help children unite with healthy homes as soon as possible. While in their care though, they will seek to provide a loving, supportive, home-like environment to help ease the transition.
In order to make this a reality, COTP will need to build 8 smaller homes along with several significant utility updates and additions. This project is a massive undertaking for COTP and will seek to incorporate international volunteers and local Haitian professionals into the construction. Homes will be built in phases, which will in part depend on funding and finding house parents. Each home will cost roughly $35,000 to build.
Thank you for your support of this great event and organization.
