Kiwanis Kids Triathlon

Children sit after taking part in the 2018 Kiwanis Kids Triathlon in Bremen. The 10th annual triathlon is Saturday, June 15.

BREMEN — The annual Bremen Kiwanis Kids Triathlon is scheduled for 9 a.m. on June 15 in Sunnyside Park.

Kacey Wright, a teacher at Bremen Elementary-Middle School who is an organizer of the event for the first time this year, said she’s had a positive experience planning it.

“It’s amazing to find out all of the details that go into organizing an event like this,” she said. “It is also unbelievable the number of volunteers it takes to make this a success.”

She said people who volunteer might be worried about not having enough experience, but everyone can be helpful.

“Many jobs are as simple as being an encouraging face to point a child in the right direction,” Wright said.
