Tri for Kopila 2018

By Olivia Christmann, Tri for Kopila Team Captain and Founder

TRI FOR KOPILA 2018 WAS A HUGEEEE SUCCESS! As a team, we have raised over $26,000 to furnish the classrooms at Kopila Valley's new rammed earth school campus. That brings us to a 5 year total of almost $100,000 for BlinkNow... what a team we have! 

go team!

Race weekend was such a whirlwind of excitement and energy. From dinner to race morning to finish line celebrations, the energy was contagious. I am in awe of each of our teammates - the way each person fundraised, raced, and contributed to the team. It was an amazing day cheering on the entire team, witnessing some first-timers become triathletes, and having such a big team (30!) coming together for something so important and meaningful.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated... it really means the world. Feeling incredibly inspired, thankful, and ready for round 6 next year. I cannot put into words quite how much this fundraiser and team means to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Fundraising paying off!

Fundraising in action! The classrooms at the new school campus are now furnished with new desks, benches, and chairs that were constructed on site. 

Taylor and Sara, thank you for all of the work you did as co-chairs to make this event so successful. To Brian, Jill, and Molly, congratulations on being the top fundraisers for the second year in a row! Though race weekend has passed, I think of you all often and what we were able to accomplish together.
