Sunday, May 19, 2013
Padonia Park Club | Cockeysville, MD
CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU TO ALL OUR KID TRIATHLETES FOR A GREAT RACE YESTERDAY!
Results are now available, so be sure to check them out!
The Make-A-Wish® Kids Triathlon at Padonia Park Club, Cockeysville, Maryland gives kids the opportunity to swim, bike and run to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in their area. This fun and active event not only offers exercise through the triathlon, but athletes are also invited to a wonderful post-race picnic complete with games, prizes, special guests and delicious food. Top finishers and top fundraisers will receive awards and each participant will get a commemorative T-shirt, goodie bag and victory medal.
The event will take place rain or shine!
If severe inclement weather causes any portion of the race to be unsafe, the Make-A-Wish staff and committee may cancel a section of the event or the entire race. This decision will be made by 8:00 a.m. the day of the event at the event site where the final announcement regarding the status of the race will be made.
Please call 301-962-9474 for messaging should you think a cancellation is likely.
In the unlikely scenario that the race is cancelled due to severe inclement weather, there will be no rain date or refunds.
As this event supports Make-A-WishMid-Atlantic, participants are encouraged to raise funds to support the Foundation's mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. We recommend that each child strive to raise $100 in pledges, thereby learning about philanthropy and the joy of helping to share the power of a wish® through their fundraising for local wish children. Make-A-Wish will be offering great tips and advice on how to make fundraising easier. Top fundraisers will be eligible for fabulous prizes and there may even be several exciting "fundraising challenges" throughout the months preceding the event.
If you have any questions, or to become a valued sponsor of this year’s event and/or provide in-kind support, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-962-WISH (9474)
