Chattanooga, Tenn. – For the first time this year, Children’s Hospital Foundation will partner with the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon on July 14 at Riverfront Parkway for the second race in the Miracle Team Series.
“We had an excellent series kick off and first race this year at the Market Street Miracle Mile on June 22 at the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza,” said Katie Jackson, Miracle Team Member and Erlanger Foundations Assistant. “So far, Miracle Team participants have raised over $2,000 for programs and services provided to sick and injured children during their stay at T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital.”
It is not too late to register and participate in this year’s series. Participants have the option to register for the full triathlon or form a relay team of two or three people to complete the sporting event.
