It was a great day for young athletes as 320 local kids ventured into the world of triathlons. Orinda Aquatics supports this special event which is run by the Orinda Foundation to raise monies for valuable programs in our community such as Rides for Seniors., the 4th of July Parade, etc. We recognize the participants for doing a great job (one participant from Oakland actually learned to swim just 4 weeks ago so that he could participate!) and the parents who were instrumental in OA's role in supporting the event, Margot Woodward, coordinator of the swimming venue, Rick Woodward as Event Starter and Jean Follmer, OA volunteer coordinator. And a sincere thank you to the Stumph's who manned the gate and the OA Booth and all who volunteered to help. OA in red team shirts had a great presence on the pool deck (even Mollie Larsen as the lifeguard was in OA gear) and within the community.
