The Mandan, North
Dakota LifeNets Triathlon
September 17, 2006
|Well over 50 adult participants and children took part in the
Mandan, North Dakota LifeNets
Triathlon The newly -formed North Dakota LifeNets chapter
organized and ran the event. Nearly $4000 was raised to
support US and international and programs designed to help LifeNets
mission to help disadvantaged and vulnerable people become
self-sufficient and pass on their benefit to others. The entire
weekend was a lot of fun and will help a cause. THANK YOU!!
We were concerned about the weather with predicted winds of more than 40 miles and hour and wind chill of 28 degrees. But, this is the NORTH. It didn't seem to hamper the enthusiasm at all. We started at noon instead of 9:00 am and simply had to wear a little more clothing...
It was a great success with everyone having a great time. Enjoy the photos below!
