JULY, 2023 - The Siouxperman Triathlon and Harvest Half Marathon & 10K are giving $6,000 to local organizations that make a difference in community wellness. This is the fifth annual community gift from the committee that leads Sioux Center’s sprint triathlon in May and the half marathon and 10K race in October.
“Wellness and community have been the focus since the first Siouxperman in 2007,” said Race Director Jason Moeller. “Huge thanks to our participants and great local support — they are the reason we host these races and why we have the opportunity to promote wellness.”
Of the donations, $3,000 is going toward Sioux County Trails. This is part of a 5-year pledge totaling $15,000 to work toward a trail between Sioux Center and Orange City.
A donation of $1,500 was given to the Dordt Hockey team, which committed significant time and energy to this year’s Siouxperman Triathlon setup, operations, and tear down.
The donations also included contributions to the local emergency responders, who promote safety and help make wellness activities like these races possible:
• $500 to the Sioux Center Police Department
• $500 to Sioux Center Ambulance
• $500 to the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office
Local involvement and support is a central part of these two wellness events, Moeller said.
“We’re looking forward to our fall race, our fifth annual Harvest Half Marathon & 10K, and we’d love to have you be part of it, whether you’re running or volunteering,” he said.
