Florida Hand Center Team Participates in Local Triathlon

Congratulations to the Florida Hand Center triathletes for competing in the Tri Charlotte Triathlon on Sunday, April 1st!  Participants in the event included several Florida Hand Center staff members, friends and family members, all sporting their Florida Hand Center wet suits designed by our own Dr. Stephen Helgemo.

The race started at South Country Regional Park and featured a 400 yard pool-swim, a 16 mile bike ride and a 5K run and our triathletes have been in training for months in anticipation of the big event.  In fact, most were first time participants in a triathlon.

Florida Hand Center staff members Kim Parker, Katrina Miller and Sarah Yagelski all received medals for finishing in the top three in their age groups.

Congratulations to all for finishing the race, and congratulations on your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle!  Your health will thank you!
