On Saturday, August, 13, kids ages 4 to 12 participated in a spectacular triathlon event called TRIumph for Rutherford Pool. The gala event was held at Rutherford Pool and Recreation Park in Ypsilanti. 44 kids participated in the event raising nearly $800.00.
The 5th annual triathlon fundraiser was presented by the Ypsilanti Kiwanis Club in cooperation with the Friends of Rutherford Pool.
Participation and fun were the top objectives Saturday, and as evidence by the expressions on the faces of the young participants, those objectives were easily exceeded!
Thank you to the Friends of Rutherford Pool, and the Kiwanis Club of Ypsilanti! Also, thank you to the planning committee, including Jessica Faul, Cathy Thorburn, Amyliegh Johnson, Jan Marten, and Brett Snyder. I can't forget our athletes! Thank you to all of the future Ypsilanti Olympians and their parents! I have to add that I am quite proud of my 7 year old daughter, Sadie!
