Yesterday was the Tri-ing to Help Triathlon that was sponsored by the Quincy Multisport Club. Todd organized this as the club's first triathlon and as a fund raiser for Ross, a local boy diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year. They were wanting to raise the money to help with his medical expenses. They had a great turnout for the first year with the adult triathlon being at 7am and a kids triathlon at 10am. Drew and Noah did the kid's triathlon and had so much fun. Noah kept telling me how much he loved doing them and they did such a great job. I'm just proud of them for doing them because it's something so great for their overall health. Noah got 2nd place in the boys' 6 and under age group and Drew got 3rd place in the boys' 7-10 age group. They are hoping for this to be an annual event for the club.

It's so nice that so many people worked together to pull this off for this sweet boy and his family. It makes you so grateful for your health and just goes to show how anything can strike anyone at anytime. No one is safe. I wish him and his family the best and he continues his battle.
