Support Requested for Team River Runner Biathlon

Nov 30, 2006 Brothers,

I usually don't send out mass mailings for charitable events, but this is a great cause. A few years back Walter Reed set up a program called Team River Runner. TRR helps wounded vets recover by exposing them to kayaking.

This coming Sunday they are hosting a biathlon fund raiser with adaptive athlete participants. The event is the Blood, Sweat, Toil and Triumph Biathlon Sunday, 12 Nov 8:30 AM. Registration is at the Washington Canoe Club (underneath Key Bridge). It will be a 4 mile run and 1 mile paddle (boats shorter than ten feet and plastic or over 40 pounds) with classes for men and women, individuals and teams, and $500 first prizes. They expect a good turnout of adaptive athletes from Walter Reed and Navy Medical. They are seeking participants, volunteers, and donations.

Check out their web site at http://www.teamriverrunner.org/eventsBSTT.php or contact the event organizer Mr Gordon Bare at gordonbare@msn.com.

Note: TRR is a member of the Combined Federal Campaign through its participation in Quantico Local CFC (CFC # 3048).

I urge you to help if you can.


Tim Tilson
