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.
