It's known as "The Best Day in Triathlon" and the 20th Anniversary Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge (SDTC) did not disappoint. The 2013 SDTC brought together our biggest crowd yet to participate, honor and celebrate the power of the human spirit over adversity. We welcomed our pioneering athletes, whom we've watched grow through the years. We honored top supporters who toed the very first SDTC start line. And we embraced new participants like survivors from the Boston Marathon bombings as they learned just what a 'running leg' can do or where a 'handcycle' can take you.
All told, the Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge, 24 Hour Fitness Tour de Cove and Kaiser Permanente Thrive-5K Walk raised close to $1.26 million. In addition, this year's Dodge Million Dollar Challenge once again exceeded its goal and raised $1.45 million to get challenged athletes back in the game of life. More importantly, through all CAF's October events, friendships were made and renewed; barriers were broken; and, lives were changed -- for both challenged and able-bodied athletes alike.
Since the first SDTC in 1994, we have borne witness to 20 Years That Changed the World. Just imagine what we'll accomplish with your help in the next 20 years.
Thank you for making it possible.
