TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

The University of Delaware Men’s Crew outperformed their competitors at the second annual Delaware Charity Challenge not just by clocking incredible strokes but in the final tally of monies raised. The Crew raised $5,000 for their team while nearly 20 other teams also raised funds for their organizations.

Delaware experienced its first real snowfall of the year on January 7th just as the Delaware Charity Challenge Winter Games got underway at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. The Charity Challenge invites all non-profits for an indoor day of athletic competition as participants move between stationary bikes, treadmills and rowing machines. Each group rallies friends and supporters as sponsors, and event organizer Innovincent recruited dozens of volunteers to assist the athletes and log scores and times.

This year 18 teams raised more than $14,000 for local causes in Delaware.

“Our event has grown from 100 participants in 2016 to 138 this year, and we have many more businesses participating in the health and wellness fair,” said Charlie Vincent of Innovincent. “It’s such a positive environment. The athletes and volunteers are here supporting each other and encouraging their friends to do their best.”

The top three teams in the “race to raise” also won additional prize money. Team Clark’s Sharks finished 2nd in the “race to raise” generating $2,000 on behalf of the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation, and Team Mosaic in Delaware raised the third highest amount of $1,665. Some of the other participating organizations included Strive ~ How You Lead Matters, Faithful Friends Animal Society, Combined Campaign for Justice, and Attack Addiction.

There were of course winners in the medley triathlon, where individuals could pick to compete in just one event, and the run, row, bike triathlon. Congrats to the competitors in this year’s indoor triathlon!
