Thank you to triathlon sponsors

To the Editor:

Sunday, July 17 was the eighth year for the Troy Kids Triathlon.

I’d like to thank my sponsors and the many volunteers who work hard to make it such a successful event.

This year there were 306 boys and girls ages 4 to 14 who came from all over Ohio.

A special thanks to Carrie Slater from the Troy Aquatic Park and Troy Recreation Department, she works relentlessly to make the city of Troy a place for people to come.

Thank you to the following sponsors, Robinson Fund, Concrete Sealants, Inc, Baird Funeral Home Inc., Wade and Susan Westfall, Wheeler’s Driving School, Any Time Fitness, Pat Willis Fund, Ted and Gayle Mitchell, Culvers, Midwest Ohio Baseball, Xcel Sports Medicine, Thrive Classical Pilates, Wendy’s, Hobart Corporation, Dannon, Troy Sports Center, Winans Chocolates & Coffee House, Troy Fire Department for the bike helmets, Dr. Craig Critchley from Upper Valley Family Care, Troy City Schools for the use of the Troy Memorial Stadium

A million thank you’s to my volunteers and sponsors,
