The Ballou Skies Triathlon Team is back for 2012 and is bigger and better than ever! Last year was a breakout year for the charity, raising over $60,000 for research being done at Ohio State University's Ross Heart Clinic, and this year we have even bigger goals than ever! We are looking to raise $100,000 this year, and every dollar towards that goal helps. To that end, today for Leap Day, we are holding the Ballou Skies Leap Day Donation Drive and Newton Shoe Raffle! A monetary donation of any size received today, will enter your name into a drawing to win one of three pair of Newton running shoes being raffled off! Please share the news, give what you can, and have HOPE!
Due to the team's tremendous presence and success all across the country last year, and of course the vital and uplifting work being done by the charity and research team, we had considerable interest from many parties about joining the team for 2012. We had candidates from all corners of the country, all very high quality people and triathletes, but in the end and after a difficult selection process, we added three new local team members to help us spread the word in 2012. You will see the Ballou Skies team at races all over the country, including but not limited to: Oceanside, Miami, Galveston, New Orleans, Knoxville, Coeur d'Alene, New York City, Lake Placid, Burlington, Louisville, Madison, Malibu, Sandusky, Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, and Kona! Also look for Ballou Skies in media print with Triathlete and Lava magazines. As of this writing, also supporting and partnering with the team as sponsors will be Blue Seventy, Powerade Zero, Newton, and Top Gear Bike Shop.
The 2012 Ballou Skies Tri Team members are:
Ben Erdeljac, Beth Shutt, Bill Hughes, Chad Holderbaum, Jason Jacobs, Jeremy Cornman, Jocelyn Cornman, Joe Vallese, Kevin Srigley, Kim Schwabenbauer, Lisa Morell, Matt Mauclair, Sally Baldwin, Stephen Filauri, Troy Shannan, and Ty Ballou.
Ballou Skies - With HOPE, Anything is Possible. See you at the races!
