The Cal Tri family wants to give a huge round of applause to our amazing donors, who have helped us raise over $12,000 in our team's crowdfunding campaign! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and are so grateful for the continued support. We would also like to thank the team, alumni, friends, and family who helped share our project link. We couldn't have done this without you! Also, for those who selected perks as part of your gift to the team, they will be sent in the next few weeks.
The fundraising amount is going to make a huge impact on our team. We plan to help more athletes compete at Nationals in April with need-based scholarships and subsidizing the race co-pay, to add to the number of team members (over 65!) already committed to going. We also hope to buy necessary team equipment to allow more people to participate in practices (trainers!) and purchase a new tent to bring to races. Your donations will go above and beyond in bringing the sport of triathlon to more people and will ensure we can properly function and provide for our team members. Our future is bright!
This past weekend, Cal Triathlon had an awesome time racing at Stanford's Treeathlon. Ryan Lund and Bear Schickel placed 2nd and 3rd respectively in the men's DL race and Katie Patrick placed 1st in the women's DL race! For the classic race, both Jonathan McKinley and Nikki Collins placed 1st in their respective races, and Bear Schickel and Carmel Lee placed 2nd. We had nine team members place in the top ten for the men's race and 15 athletes raced their first triathlon. If you'd like to see more photos, Cal Tri alum Andy Jessop took amazing photos of our team! https://pics.andymjessop.com/Sports/Cal-Tri/Treeathlon-2020
Thank you again for your support and for making this campaign such a successful one. We're ready to make waves at the West Coast Conference in San Luis Obispo and Nationals in Tempe, AZ!
