Many of you have probably heard Drury Triathlon’s storage/bike shop was broken into and most of their bikes, gear, tools, racks, etc were stolen. Voluntary donations will be taken ($20 requested, but any amount gratefully received) and 100% of those proceeds will go to the team to help replace what they can.
Message us for questions/issues.
So there’s a lot going no these days, huh? We hope you are all doing ok in these crazy times. Worried about riding with a bunch of others in this COVID era? Planning on being gone on Aug 8th and so can’t make the ride? Otherwise want to donate any amount of money no matter how small, regardless if you are riding or not? Want to donate ahead of time, before the unofficial QCC, to speed up your registration that morning? (Be sure to bring proof of donation with you that morning.) Fear not – we have the solution!!!!
Click on this link – www.drury.edu/panthersgive and donate here but BEWARE – make sure you designate "\;TRIATHLON"\; in the "\;Enter Sport Designation"\; box as shown in the pic below. That way Drury knows to allocate your donation to the triathlon team.
Remember – the Unofficial QCC is for all riders – there are multiple routes of different distances, with ride leaders for each route. So come on out and help this great cause!!!!
