BENEFITING: Drive 4 Rebecca
EVENT DATE: Sep 08, 2012
Drive4Rebecca is an official charity team of The 2012 NYC Triathlon taking place on Sunday July 8, 2012.
Drive4Rebecca is an ongoing effort to help all children with special needs by helping their families to become stronger advocates. We raise funds for education, for autism research and to help increase awareness of autism.
Rebecca is laughing in the video because she can't wait for her dad to sweat it out during the 2012 NYC Triathlon while she sits back, relaxes, and comes along for the ride. For the 10k run, Jon is pushing Rebecca in her Advanced Mobility jogger.
We want to thank Headsweats for providing their awesome hats to all of our team members and we are very excited about our team - some athletes have specified that 50% or more of the funds they raise will support their favorite charities that help children with special needs.
