2013 Sharon's Ride. Run. Swim. Walk
Triathlon for Epilepsy was a SUCCESS!
Sharon's Ride. Run. Swim. Walk Triathlon for Epilepsy was held Saturday, October 12th, 2013 at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville for the benefit of the Epilepsy Foundation. The event netted over $17,000 for the Foundation. This year marked the incorporation of a 300 yard swim, a 20 mile bike ride, a 5K run, and ending with a 1 mile fun walk. We had over 150 participants and the feedback regarding the venue, course, and triathlon has been well received and very positive. Participants involved in this year's event came from Iowa; Hawk Point, St. Louis, Fenton, St. Charles, Florissant in Missouri, and Burbank and Benton in Illinois; plus others in the area. The event proved financially successful, and gained attention in regards to doing a triathlon and informing individuals in the community about epilepsy and helmet safety.
