The Lake Hickory Y Triathlon is scheduled for Saturday July 16, 2011. Proceeds from the Lake Hickory Y Triathlon will remain in the community to fund the Cilicia Wicker Memorial Playground at the Alexander County YMCA and the Through Healing Eyes Foundation.
Mrs. Wicker was a local teacher who leaves behind a husband and two children. The playground will enrich the lives of the children in our community while fostering awareness of the financial and emotional needs of local families dealing with “Cancer in the Home”.
Through Healing Eyes (T.H.E.) is a local nonprofit organization founded by Katheryn Harlan, a breast cancer survivor. T.H.E. is dedicated to breast cancer education, funding for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, and providing inspiration to those affected by breast cancer.
In addition to individual entry, there are relay teams that consist of one swimmer, one biker and one runner.
The triathlon will take place at Dusty Ridge Park, Taylorsville, NC,
and will include a 400 yard swim, 16 mile bike ride, and a 5k run.
