Sawyer Crossen Memorial Triathlon

Swim, Bike, Run
Over 200 kids participate in this event annually.  The event is for kids ages 4-17 and their families.  The children’s triathlon raises money for a scholarship in memory of Sawyer Crossen. The annual event, founded by Sawyer’s family, promotes physical fitness, family and community. 

Sponsorship in this event will help defray the cost of t-shirts, timing chips, awards, and food. Proceeds from this event go to a special fund which will provide equipment and supplies for each grade level that Sawyer’s classmates are in. For example, the kindergartners at Winnequah School received two video cameras and a memorial plaque on the Kindergarten Tree planted last fall.  A portion also goes to the Monona Parks & Recreation Program Fund which has helped purchase pool vacuums,        snowshoes, ice skates, soccer goals and other supplies to help us continue to offer quality recreation programs to the children of Monona.
