*Please note that ANY donation amount is greatly appreciated. $5 or $10 is actually a good amount of money to almost 8 year olds. If you have given more, or do give more, that is going above and beyond. Thank you all so much!
We are 7.8 year old twin girls who are triathletes. We want to travel to Boulder, Colorado to compete in the Ironkids race. Our race will be a 50 yard swim, a 2 mile bike and 500 yard run. We have been training very hard and are ready to be IronKids! We want trophies, but we will also be happy to place in the top ten and earn a spot in the national Ironkids competition.
We love living in an active town, and are by nature active kids. We started swimming when we were 5 months old, we could run by age 10 months, and we have been mountian biking since age 5. The dirt jump parks and bump tracks are some of our favorite places to play. We are natural triathletes, and want to further ourselves in the sport this summer. We are currently in the 8 and under age group, which is the junior level, a great time to compete in Ironkids. Next year things get a bit more serious, the length of the race very long, and we want to have this experience while we are still in the junior division.
Your story, your background
We started competing in the sport of triathlon at age 6, after finishing a week long TriKids 123 camp in our home town of Park City. We won our age group and realized we were pretty good at what we were doing. We have done two triathlons this summer, and once again won our age group. We have run two 5k races and a few other fun runs locally. We ride our bikes and swim many times each week. We are serious about our trianing, but also like to have fun! Unfortunantly, when your sport is a combination of three sports, there is a lot of gear involved. Being twins, we need some help with not only a little bit of gear, but travel expenses for our trip to Boulder.
What you need
We need new sneakers with Yankz ($50 to $75 each) = $150
Another bike rack $150
Travel expenses = $450 to $550 (subsidized by our parents)
Food and Fuel = unlimited (we never stop eating)
Race Registration $110 was paid by our grandma
We work hard, and give everything we do 100 percent effort!
My mom is our coach and our dad and little sister our our best fans!
