Lake Almanor Country Club is pleased to announce they will host the 7th Annual Courage Triathlon, an event that raises funds to benefit the rescue of sex-trafficked children, to be held September 11, 2021. “Due to COVID, we were not able to hold a live race last year and also had to find a new location due to on-going mandates, “says Director Dawn Hershberger. “We were adamant about keeping it at Lake Almanor since we have had terrific support for the event over the years.”
Dawn and coordinator, Joanne Vice are busy laying out new routes are estimated to be a 2.9-mile run, 5.6-mile bike ride and the 3.1-mile kayak leg with residents in LACC assisting and already excited about putting together their relay teams. “We are pleased to have this event held at LACC and know the LACC community will be out in full-force to support as sponsors, participants or cheerleaders,” says Ed Organ, president of LACC board.
Though this event is for a serious cause, it is a day of fun and celebration with all levels of athletes, both local and from across the country, enjoying the comradery, the food and music. With the event being held on the 20th anniversary of 9-11, there will be an opening ceremony honoring the loss of American citizens and participants will be carrying an American Flag. “We are excited to be live again and with a new location on the beautiful Lake we anticipate a wonderful turnout,” says Dawn. Over the past seven years, this event has raised over $150,000 to combat the trafficking of children and support their long-term recovery.
