2018 Stoneleigh Kids Tryathlon
Welcome to the Kid's Tryathlon!
The Stoneleigh Kids Try-Athlon is fast approaching. Sunday, Sept 2 is the event date this year. RAIN DATE will be Monday September 3; same time.
Entry deadline to ensure T shirt size and custom bib names is August 13.
Last year’s event was a huge success, and we had 120 kids participate in the event. We plan to repeat that this year, and will hope for a slightly sunnier day and avoid that rain from last year!
This is a race for fun, so no experience is necessary, and you don’t even have to be able to swim or ride a two-wheeler yet. Swimmers who have not passed the Stoneleigh deep water test will use the shallow end of the pool for the event, and training wheels are just fine.
This Year’s Benefactor
Half of all patients are fighting a rare cancer.
About 50 percent of people with cancer have a rare cancer. Rare cancers include brain, pancreatic, ovarian, stomach, all types of pediatric cancers, and many others. Even though they account for about half of all cancer diagnoses when combined, research on many rare cancers is drastically underfunded, often leaving patients with limited or no treatment options. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center—the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center—is committed to changing that reality. MSK’s close collaboration between doctors and researchers is a unique strength: new drugs and therapies developed in the lab can be moved quickly to patients’ bedsides.
An estimated 1,685,210 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in 2016.
Approximately 50% of people with cancer are battling a rare cancer.
Rare cancers include brain, pancreatic, ovarian, thyroid, and stomach cancers; leukemia and lymphoma; all pediatric cancers; and many others.
Each year MSK treats more than 400 subtypes of cancer.
