Southern California Trike-A-Thon For a Cure!!!October 10, 2010 by Victoria
Are you in Southern California? Join us for the first Gwendolyn Strong Foundation Trike-A-Thon. That's right, a Trike-A-Thon. How fun is this? My super awesome and creative friends, Theresa and Adri (whom I've known since riding a trike myself), have organized this fun family event and we love it!
A trike-a-thon is simple: In a 10 minute time period, young children will cycle their way around a "track", collecting pledges for each lap they make, and be cheered on for each little peddle they can muster! Adorable!!! There will be music, goodies, and fun for everyone. And there is also a "Trike Decorating Contest" with Gwendolyn selecting the winner! This is a super positive fun day for young children and their families! And we are so excited about it!!!
Details -->Over twenty children have already signed up and are busy collecting pledges. If you would like to join the fun or would like more details, please contact Theresa Portugal or Adri Benson. We encourage all parents, grandparents, and friends to come cheer the children on. This is an exciting event for them and spectators make it all the more fun! And please help spread the word to other families. Together we can End SMA!!!
