Official Charity Partner – Sleepyhead Beds

Elite Cycling is proud to partner with Sleepyheadbeds as the official charity partner of the 2014 Jackson County and Midwest Meltdown Triathlon/Duathlon!

Founded in 2010, Sleepyhead Beds began picking up gently-used beds and delivering them to bedless children in the Kansas City metro area. Sleepyhead Beds delivered approximately 1800 beds to area children in 2011, and there are many more children still in need of a proper place to sleep.

There are plenty of area resources that provide housing, food and shelter, but there is no resource that provides beds for children in need.

These children come from families that are overwhelmed with financial stress and cannot afford the upfront cost of a bed. Some live in poverty, some live with disabled parents and some are victims of violence.

No matter what conditions children are living in, we believe every single one of them deserves the comfort of a bed.

We’re proud to support this great organization and encourage our athletes to learn more about the charity partner who they are supporting through this year’s events.

Rainy Day Race Discount

Like many of you, our race plans for the weekend were affected by severe weather yesterday that forced some races to be shortened and others to be cancelled altogether.

Having experienced both sides of the equation we sympathize with both the athletes who were unable to fulfill their race plans as well as with the race directors who were forced to make difficult decisions intended to protect the athletes that never seem to have an easy answer.

As a small token of appreciation of our local triathletes we are offering a “rainy day registration discount” to save a little on our upcoming races.

Use code “RAINYDAYDISCOUNT13″ during registration and save $15 on registration to either the Jackson County Triathlon or Midwest Meltdown Triathlon.
