DC Tri Club is in contention to win the SavageMan Club Challenge - http://www.savagemantri.org/ClubChallenge.html. In order to be considered, a club must have at least 8 participants in the race - either as competitors or volunteers. The volunteer spots are filling up, but there are still plenty of openings for anyone who hasn't signed up yet. They need people from Friday, September 18 - Monday, September 21 for different shifts. All volunteers receive a t-shirt, visor, and are invited to the post-race party. Please sign up through the website - http://savagemantri.org/Volunteers.html. This is a great way to get involved in the event if you aren't racing, it's a lot of fun, and you earn points for DC Tri Club. Last year, to help earn extra points for our club, we even had club members who were relaying volunteer for shifts after their relay legs - now that's dedication! Any questions, please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Kim Larson - firstname.lastname@example.org.
All profits from SavageMan go directly to the Joanna M. Nicolay Melanoma Foundation. As triathletes, we spend a lot of time outdoors and know how important this cause is. Another way clubs earn points is through fundraising - http://savagemantri.org/Fundraising.html. You don't have to be a racer to be a "Champion". There are fantastic awards and incentives for fundraising - any amount is a contribution that makes an impact - and fundraising isn't as hard as people think! I was able to raise almost $2000 last year for the 2008 "Tri-to-Win" SavageMan Triathlon Festival - it was an honor to be able to contribute to a great cause, and the experience was beyond rewarding.
