Triathalon to support Habitat for Humanity

Fundraising event will be held on Sunday, Aug. 25

Habitat for Humanity Upper Fraser Valley is holding a fundraising triathlon on Sunday, Aug. 25 at Albert Dyck Memorial Park in Abbotsford.

Abbotsford Triathlon Sprint 2013 involves a 750m swim, a 20km bike ride, and a 5km run.

The public is invited to compete as a team or individual. Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are also available.

All proceeds benefit Habitat, which builds homes in partnership with families in need. The organization recently broke ground on its latest residence, which will be constructed on Farmer Road.
