return to 2008 Events



Sea World, San Diego - February 2, 2008


The winners of the Swimathon fund raiser, along with the kids who
weren't able to go to the Challenged Athletes Foundation race last
November because of the fires in San Diego, at the annual
Endurance Sports Awards banquet at Sea World.


Josh, Damien, Miguel and Mikey warming up at the piano.
Once again, the kids were hosted overnight by
EE good buddy David Brenner.

Endurance Sports Awards at Sea World


The kids with triathlon super-coach Paul Huddle and Keith Simmons.
(Keith supplied us with brand new wetsuits last year.)



Robert and Mary Ann, parents of the deeply missed
Jon "Blazeman" Blais,
who completed the Ironman World Championships after
being diagnosed with ALS


Josh displays two of the eight giant dolphins the kids snagged
in games of skill before the banquet.


Hard to believe they scored more schwag than last year,
but they did.


Our very own table
(just before we took those champagne bottles away)


Hard working and hard partying



And this greeted us the next day on the way home.


A splendid time was had by all!
