  • On behalf of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Board, staff, volunteers, and children, I would like to thank the numerous volunteers and sponsors that gave so much of their time and money to help make this year’s Get Fit TRYathlon & 5K/10K a success.  We are truly blessed to live in a community that is so generous! We are thrilled to announce that the event raised $8,500 to support Big Brothers Big Sisters which provides mentors for at-risk youth in Crawford County.
    We genuinely appreciate all the assistance from businesses and individuals that allow our agency to continue matching children with positive role models. This event would not have been possible without the hard work of Joanna and Drew Rhodes, Britt Hill and Roger Lomshek.  We would also like to thank Pittsburg State University for the use of their facilities and the city of Pittsburg for working with us on making the course safe for the children. The overwhelming support of everyone assures a brighter future, not only for our children, but also for our entire community.
    We would also like to say “Congratulations” to everyone that competed in the TRYathlon and 5K/10K event.  Everyone gave it their all and should be very proud of their efforts! We were shocked at the number of people that came out for the event this year. We had 62 runners in the 5K and 10K and 121 children compete in the youth triathlon. To see many fun photos and event results, visit our Facebook page, “Get Fit Tryathlon & Get Fit 5k/10k”.
    Again, thank you!
