Dear Friends and Family,

We are participating in the BreakAway Kids Tri by CycleHealth, and we hope our effort will inspire you. It might be the best and most important thing we do this summer.

Besides training for and then doing the triathlon this summer (a swim, bike, run + obstacle race), we are raising money for two CycleHealth charity projects that will help local kids:

  1. MN Family Burn Camp - an adventure camp for kids who've faced burn traumas; hosted by YMCA Camp du Nord with medical support from Regions Hospital
  2. Kid-Powered Wellness - scholarships to remove barriers (i.e. cost, transportation, equipment) so that no CycleHealth is left on the sidelines in life.

We are playing it forward by racing and fundraising to give other kids the opportunity to experience adventure like never before. Our goal is to raise at least $750.

A donation from you will inspire us to raise even more and train harder this summer. And, of course, 100% of your donation is tax deductible.

CycleHealth's promise to donors:

100% of money raised by kids stays local and directly impacts kids in need.

Will you help us with a donation? 

Thank you!

Sophia (11) and Rose (9) Calabria

We did it! Thank you so much for all your help. We had FUN, raised $1200, made friends and got an award for being in the top tier of fundraisers - new bike computers!

Dear Family and Friends,

Rose and I attended a training session last night where we biked the course. It was fun and beautiful. We are VERY excited to participate on Saturday. We have been training at Fish Lake by our house where we swim, bike and run at the park. 

We are delighted and very thankful for all your donations. We never imagined we would exceed our goal so quickly. 

Again, thank you so much. 

Rose and Sophia.
