Kids helping Kids Triathlon in October

Great opportunity for our students to work towards! 

Here is the race info – let me know if you have question or need anything else. I’ll also bring by some bookmarks/cards that you can send home with students if interested.  
On October 12, 2014, Applebee’s and The V Foundation for Cancer Research are hosting the first ever “Kids Helping Kids Triathlon”, with all proceeds going to fund pediatric cancer research at the Duke Children’s Hospital.  We are working hard to encourage as many kids as possible to sign up, have fun and, most importantly, help other children who are battling a terrible disease. 

Below is a graphic with more info, and you can also find more details here: http://kidshelpingkidstri.racesonline.com/ (At some point down the road we’ll have a discount code that we can provide… when that time comes I’ll send that along as well).
