2009 Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon - Registration Open

First, I want to thank the TSA for so many participants in our 2008 event. Over 100 of the 370 kids who participated in the 2008 Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon apparently from the TSA. And, a special thanks to Bob Goudreau for allowing us to use your Blog site to get the word out. We ended up raising over $15,000 from that event.

I am writing to tell you about the 2009 event! We opened registration this morning at 11:30am for the 3rd Annual Swim for Smiles Youth Triathlon - to be held, again, in Chapel Hill - on Sunday, May 31st. Last year's event drew more than 370 participants and we sold out of spaces. So, we have expanded to over 400 spots for 2009.

Remember, this is a fundraiser for the UNC Children's Hospital and kids ages 6-17 can participate - we have a short course (100m swim/2.5mile bike/1K run) and a long course (300m swim/5mile bike/3k run) and every finisher gets a medal and we have all sorts of prizes for placing in each age group.

Please consider passing this information on to your swim teams and encouraging them to participate. It's a lot of fun, it's for a great cause and it's truly Kids Helping Kids.

Thank you,

The Swim For Smiles Foundation
