2019 Marked Five Years of the Tri-4 Kristie

2019 marked the 5th year of the Kristie Yaakoby Memorial Triathlon. From its inception, participation grew over 100%. We thank the community for supporting us. 2020 is a time to create a new way to honor Kristie. This lady always lives in our hearts. She was strong-willed, yet patient and kind. She was an advocate for clean-living, strength, and exercise. Talia Yaakoby worked very hard to bring this triathlon to fruition. All proceeds were dedicated to three places over the years: Michael's Place in Traverse City, Cowell Family Cancer Center, and the Lurie's Children Center in honor of Abby Gross. We are very sorry that we need to reevaluate this year and cannot continue the triathlon in 2020. The volunteers have been outstanding, especially Jeanne Gross and Cheryl Robinson. Our hope is to start the triathlon in 2021. Thank you everyone who has supported us and Kriste. She is always with us.
