JUNE, 2019 —The Siouxperman Triathlon is giving $6,500 to local organizations that make a difference in our community’s life and wellness. The Siouxperman has officially been recognized as a non-profit organization, and this is the second annual community gift from the locally-run sprint triathlon, held the first Saturday in May each year.
“This triathlon encourages people making healthy lifestyle choices and is especially friendly to first-time triathletes,” said Race Director Jason Moeller. “We see the work these organizations are doing in our community to encourage people of all ages toward wellness in their whole lives.”
This year, the Siouxperman Committee made the following gifts:
-$2,500 to Sioux Center Trails
-$1,000 to Young Life
-$1,000 to the Sioux Center Athletic Boosters
-$1,000 to The Key Club
-$1,000 to All Kids Can
“We continue to be blessed with great participation for this event along with great local support, which has allowed us to give back to our community,” Moeller said.
The race committee is working on a new event for Sioux Center: the Harvest Half Marathon & 10K, which will be Saturday, Oct. 5, in Sioux Center.
“We are passionate about creating events that encourage healthy lifestyles and that bring people together,” Moeller said. “We hope to connect with even more people with these new fall races.”
