Funds from triathlon to benefit Children’s-attended camp
CycleHealth, a Twin Cities-based nonprofit that raised more than $62,000 for Children’s Minnesota with its first-ever BreakAway Kids Tri (triathlon) in August, announced that funds raised from its 2015 event will benefit the newly renamed Victory In Progress (VIP), a camp for kids, including Children’s patients, with cancer or blood disorders.
The camp, which had lost its previous source of funding, was chosen in a unanimous vote by CycleHealth’s Kid Advisory Panel. Money raised at the BreakAway Kids Tri will cover the costs of sending more than 100 kids to the camp, which has helped kids for 31 years.
The second annual BreakAway Kids Tri events take place Aug. 15, 2015, at Lake Rebecca Park in Minneapolis and Aug. 22, 2015, at Lake Elmo Park Reserve in St. Paul.
