Fantastic effort: Adrian Hayward with students at Trikki Kidz after thier TRYathlon.

Fundraiser: Adrian Hayward thanks Trikki Kidz staff for thier efforts in fundraising for Ironman for Noah and Rivers Gift.

Every effort great and small was for a special cause as a group of students put their skills into a try-athlon.

The Trikki Kidz try-athlon was a fundraiser for Cobram’s Adrian Hayward’s Ironman for Noah, which is raising awareness and funds for River’s Gift and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Children and their families raised a total of $3114.70, which delighted the Ironman for Noah organisers.

Trikki Kidz said the try-athlon was a massive success with the children not only participating in physical exercise, but also learning about the importance of helping others. During the three-day event, children participated in many different activities ranging from bike riding and weight-lifting, to pushing a doll in a pram along a squiggly line.

The fundraising efforts mean the Ironman for Noah has now reached $11436, surpassing the goal of $10000. Mr Hayward is now aiming to raise $15000.

He left on Sunday for Cairns, the site of the Ironman 70.3 event he’ll be competing in ahead of the official day on June 11.
