Weatbix Triathion

A week ago my daughter took part in the Weetbix Triathlon here in Palmerston North. A little under 2000 children between the ages of six and fifteen; swimming, biking and running. It was marvellously well organised, the day was sunny and warm. Simply wonderful.

To me this is community. Family and schools and the community coming together, with organizers and volunteers making the day a success.  Every participant received a gold medal;  more importantly, they had a wonderful time.  The smiles at the finish were delightful.
