Looking to do your first Ironman 70.3? Not quite ready to do it solo? Would like to enter as part of the team but may not be able to afford the entry fee??
Here is an opportunity to aid Muscular Dystrophy WA and be part of our club team in the MDWA Teams Challenge at SunSmart IRONMAN 70.3 Busselton 2016!
What is the MDWA Teams Challenge?
In 2016 TWA are continuing the MDWA Teams Challenge in support of their official charity partner, Muscular Dystrophy WA. Currently, there is no treatment or cure for muscular dystrophy. Those with muscular dystrophy face daily challenges; their muscles waste away, they are often confined to wheelchairs and put simply are not able to enjoy the luxury of completing a triathlon.
How will the MDWA Teams Challenge work?
Triathlon WA will allocate one FREE entry to every affiliated TWA Club to compete at the SunSmart Ironman 70.3 Busselton teams event held on Sunday 1st of May 2016.
Please note these entries CAN NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED and are only available for TWA CLUB MEMBERS to enter. The entry cannot be used to refund a team that is already entered in the event. It needs to consist of people who have not entered.
The MDWA Teams Challenge participants will compete in a separate category for TWA affiliated clubs, with the fastest team being awarded the TWA Fastest Club Trophy. In addition to this the team that raises the most amount of money will also receive a trophy and fantastic prize pack for their club.
So I have to fund-raise?
A minimum of $500 must be raised to be eligible for the MDWA Teams Challenge, this is barely the cost of a normal team entry. TWA and MDWA will assist clubs in setting up a fundraising webpage via everyday hero. TWA will also be provide Perth Hills with a fundraising guide with ideas on how to get our fundraising started. You might be racing as a team of three but the fund-raising team consists of the whole club. You won’t be doing this alone.
What do we need from you, our members?
Please nominate your interest to us ASAP but by Monday 7th March (latest) at firstname.lastname@example.org Also let us know which leg you are interested in doing (with a backup plan should someone already have put in dibs on your preferred leg). First come, first served so if there are a few of you that are keen to do it together then please get on board quickly!
The sooner the team can be put together, the better so that TWA can assist us in setting up our webpage and getting started on fundraising.
