I don’t even know where to start since we had such a successful weekend at the Greater Cleveland Triathlon.
First off, I need to give THANKS to everyone who stopped by our booth and participated in our raffle. Not only you bought yourself a chance to win any of the superior prizes we had available but you helped raise funds for NATT. Every dollar that we were able to raise this weekend will allow NATT to continue their mission to educate and create awareness about blood clots and blood clotting disorders. If you get the chance don't forget to take some time and read more about what NATT is doing at their website

Secondly, I could not continue without giving a HUGE THANKS to Mickey Rzymek - GCT's SENSATIONAL Organizer, Deirdre Callahan and her family - for hosting the Clot Buster and being a POWERHOUSE fund raiser, Bill Deiter from 2nd Sole - for giving us the chance to have two ZOOT Zenith Wetsuits available for the raffle, and DPM Sports -for the great products they provided for the raffle.

All together we were able to raise a grand total of $659.00 THANKS TO ALL OF YOU who participated in the raffle.

Of course all of the goods found a good home and here is the list of all the winners. I have to apologize in advance if I mess up your name. There is a chance that I did not understand it from the ticket stub so I am sorry!

Sometimes after fundrasing so hard you need to try and recover...

So, all together it was a great weekend for racing and fund raising. For now, you need to sit tight and wait for my race report coming up on my next post.

Thanks again for helping NATT on this event and hopefully next year we can aim a little higher and reach above the 4 digit mark. I am already working on getting with my contacts to secure better goods for next years's raffle. So don't forget your money when you come to expo. You never know if you are going to get that lucky ticket number.

Thank your for reading,
