Join Friends of Dottie’s House as they host their 6th Annual Triathlon/Duathlon/Aqua Velo on Sunday, October 13th at Island Beach State Park in Seaside Park.
Grab your swimming, running and biking gear and join in a fun-filled day to raise money for a great cause!
The race will benefit Dottie’s House, a 17-unit apartment facility in the Brick area that provides housing, support services and a training program for women and children who are survivors of domestic violence.
This non-profit transitional housing program is designed to empower these women to gain emotional and financial independence and break the generational cycle of domestic violence.
All participants will receive custom designed t-shirts, lunch and refreshments. Discounted registration fees apply so sign up at www.dqtridu.com/eos.htm
Tickets will be available at the Triathlon for the Dottie’s House Holiday 50/50 Super Raffle.
Raffle tickets are $100 each and if all 200 tickets are sold, the grand prize winner and Dottie’s House will each receive $10,000! The drawing will take place on December 4, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at the Friends of Dottie’s House Holiday Cocktail Party at River Rock Restaurant & Marina Bar (tickets can be purchased separately).
