Team Ethan TRI 2014
Together We Tri
Rachel and Ethan will be competing as a Push Team in this year's Cleveland Triathlon. Rachel will be towing Ethan through a 200 meter swim & 6 mile bike ride. They will finish with 2K run. Many friends have decided to join them on this inspiring adventure. More than forty 7-14 year olds have been training hard and are excited for race day. We are happy to be part of the UCP family and encourage a donation of any amount to help this wonderful organization. Many thanks to everyone for the overwhelming response of support! We are truly blessed to live in a community full of such wonderful people! Without even realizing it, Rachel and Ethan are spreading a message of awareness, acceptance and determination, and are setting an example that we should all hope to follow. Race day is July 27th, 2014. Wear your yellow and come witness this in person!
Rachel & Ethan in action! Thank you to the Tallmadge Lion's Club for the donation of the bike and Wike.
