Description

It's summer - lets get our kids to....

SWIM!  RUN! BIKE!  RUN! and for a great cause!  

This is a part of Floridaraceday.com Kids Triathlon Series 

Kids Triathlon participants will swim in the pool, run about a quarter mile,  jump on their bikes, then off on their feet for the running portion. The events will be chip timed with a finisher time. Distances are based on the age of the child. Kids must supply their own bikes and must wear a helmet to participate. We are sorry but no training wheels are allowed.

Scared to send your little guys out on this endurance adventure? We get it - We have kids too :)  Click on some pictures of the last kids triathlon at Julington Creek and RiverTown

Proceeds will go to Murabella's own Lopez Family. Their daughter Ellie, She was born as a micro-preemie and was put through quite a few experiences in her first few months of life..... fast forward to now, not even two and she is facing her toughest battle yet. On May 3, 2019 Ellie was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma - a rare eye cancer that occurs in children. Ellie will undergo 4-8 chemo treatments, first one starting next week-after the chemo treatments are finished they will determine if the tumor is responding to treatment, if it does not Ellie will have surgery to remove her one eye.  there are no doctors in their immediate area that treat this cancer, they will spend the next several weeks driving six hours each way to and from Miami every couple of weeks and staying three days at a time in a hotel. The purpose of this race  is to help them focus on Ellie and her treatments and relieve some of their financial strain they will feel with the constant hotel stays, the gas to get to and from appointments, and eating out all the time
