The Bay City Morning Rotary will host its 4th annual Driathlon and is in need of your support. The Driathlon is a very unique event that changes the typical triathlon by canoeing instead of swimming.
The last three events were a huge success, nearly selling out or selling out every year and expecting to sell out this year!! Teams of two competed against each other in canoes, on bikes and in their running shoes utilizing the river, Railtrail and Riverwalk with the transition area stationed at Veterans Memorial Park. The event included canoe rental, a tech shirts, backpack for each participant, giveaways, food and trophies.
We’ve received many great comments about the race and how people are looking forward to participating again this year. The people and the city are talking about how exciting and unique this event was and are recruiting others to join them this year. As a club we are very happy with the outcome and excited about the prospects of our now signature event. Not only did the race help the club raise money for needy organizations in our area, raising over $30,000 for clubs like Junior
Achievement and Big Brothers Big Sisters among others, it brought people from all over the state to experience Bay City and its surroundings.
If it wasn’t for the generosity of the sponsors, our event would have been difficult to get off the ground.
Participants and spectators were impressed with the backing we had from our sponsors…a good feeling for us. We received publicity in the news, the Times and on the radio which all helps promote our sponsors like you. Plans are already underway to make the event BIGGER and BETTER! We know if we build it they will come…and they did. Help us do that by reviewing the enclosed sponsorship levels and determine what amount is feasible.
Mark your calendar for the 4th Annual Driathlon to be held on Sunday September 14, 2014. Please put serious thought into supporting our cause for this year’s event. This year we will be donating a large portion of the proceeds to Boys and Girls Club of Bay County! Help make this a big draw, allowing the Rotary club to disperse much needed funds to local charities.
Thank you for your time and we look forwarded to working with you on this special event!
