Last Sunday, May 4th, was the 31st edition of the Crawfishman Triathlon produced and directed by Mark Salvetti, our Director of Project Management. We are proud of Mark for his efforts in organizing such a great event and are so happy to support such a good cause!
The Crawfishman Triathlon consists of a 1,000-yard swim, an 18-mile bike ride and a 4-mile run, with nearly 360 athletes competing in this year’s event. The event takes place in the Grande Hills Estates subdivision north of Covington in Bush, Louisiana. Many people volunteer their time to make the event possible, and several volunteers from Stirling Properties joined the effort this year.
Every year the race proceeds are donated to two main organizations, Have a Heart Thru Art and the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Research Center. Donations this year are expected to be similar to past years when $10,000 or more was raised. Since the inception of the race, over $100,000 in donations have been made to individuals in need as well as many local organizations.
Mark your calendars – next year’s date is Sunday May 3, 2015….the Second Sunday of Jazz Fest.
