Pinky Swear Foundation is partnering with Hy-Vee to host its first-ever virtual triathlon event on a national scale to help kids battling cancer and their families.
People of all ages are invited to participate online.
Along with a $15 registration fee, participants are asked to fundraise a minimum of $50 in a variety of creative ways to help support families with a child battling cancer.
Pinky Swear Foundation said its goal is to raise more than $300,000 from the eight-week-long virtual event.
"With this event pivoting into a virtual experience this year, I am excited to see the creativity from kids and families," said Erica Campbell, executive director for Pinky Swear Foundation. "Safety is our No. 1 priority, and we, along with our partners at Hy-Vee, have some incredible activities planned so kids of all ages and abilities can participate and feel good that they are doing something good to help others."
So far, about 200 kids from 14 different states were signed up with more than $130,000 raised, Pinky Swear told KSTP.
