We are very excited to invite you to the 7th Annual Berkshire Triathlon! We are very excited to invite you to the 7th Annual Berkshire Triathlon! The Berkshire Triathlon’s mission is to: Be Active, Be Merry, and Help Sick Kids.
In our first five years, we raised more than $65,000 for children with serious illnesses in Central Ohio. Our goal for 2018 is to raise $50,000. Join our efforts through any of these three ways:
Do a TRIATHLON (swim>bike>run>party!)
Do a DUATHLON (run>bike>run>party!)
Be a RACE DAY SUPPORTER (cheer>donate>party!)
The Berkshire Triathlon is sprint distance and noncompetitive. Teaming up with friends to split or share events is absolutely welcomed.
We also invite you to reach out to your friends, families, and colleagues to turn your registration donation into a meaningful contribution that will change the lives of kids with serious illnesses. This year, 100% of the proceeds generated through registrations go to Flying Horse Farms, while 100% of our silent auction proceeds go to The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.
Flying Horse Farms truly is a magical world set apart from illness and life's stresses. There, on over 200 wooded acres just outside Mt. Gilead, Ohio, among lakes and limitless space for exploration and fun, campers no longer feel like patients, and their illnesses are no longer what makes them unique.
Meanwhile, The Columbus Ronald McDonald House grants ill children the daily security and support they need and deserve by providing families a comfortable, safe, clean, and accommodating home-away-from home right across the street from Nationwide Children's Hospital. Thanks to generous donations from people like you, no family is ever turned away from the "House with a Heart."
And if you needed one more reason to sign up, ALL of our participants will be treated to a City Barbecue feast at the finish line!
Won't you join us? We certainly hope so.
