What do my race fees support?
In 2011 the Dina LaVigna Breath of Life Fund pledged $750,000 to Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA (Dina’s alma mater) to improve the facilities in which children spend hours a day receiving the treatment they need. The result is Dina’s Beach, a 'child friendly' setting that embraces a 'beach' theme (including the construction of a boat that serves as the nursing station). The dedication and opening of Dina’s Beach occurred on December 6, 2007. Click here to see photos from the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony.
Dina’s Beach is now a critical component of what is the most outstanding PI research, treatment and outreach diagnostic center in the world sponsored by the Jeffrey Modell Foundation (JMF). The Dina LaVigna Breath of Life Fund intends to continue its financial support of the state of the art facility. This will be to meet our financial pledges to UCLA for Dina’s Beach, to finish the work that still needs to be done there, and to make sure that it remains the world standard for providing the best environment possible for those children who need to spend hours receiving necessary treatment. We are also pursuing a number of minor projects in other hospitals also with the aim of making their treatment sessions more bearable. One hope is that in a small way, we can improve the infusion environment at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (Dina received excellent care there when she was a child), and with other University Hospitals affiliated with JMF. Proceeds from this charity event will go towards support of these goals.
AwardsAwards will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each age group & category.
Post Race PartyAfter the race plan on hanging out for the Barbecue and music. This party is our way of thanking everyone for helping the Dina LaVigna Breath of Life Fund help others.
Youth/Junior Southwest Development Race Series
USA Triathlon recognizes that not every junior athlete is ready for or interested in the draft-legal format. Draft-legal racing requires a unique skill-set that takes time to master. Junior Development Races provide athletes a gateway into the developmental pipeline. Athletes will experience triathlon in its traditional, non-drafting format, officiated using USA Triathlon Rules. Junior Development Races are typically sprint-distance and have been selected because of their "junior-friendly" atmosphere and age-appropriateness.
The Southwest Region of USAT is sponsoring a series of developmental sprint races to encourage youth (13-15) and junior (16-19) athletes to participate in triathlons. Ages are determined by USAT rules (age as of Dec 31, 2013). The Southwest region will have a point series with updated divisional rankings throughout the year.
Series Rules :
1. All youth and junior race finishers will be included in the end of year regional rankings.
2. All athletes must be annual USAT members.
3. In order to win Series Championship, all athletes must complete a minimum of 2 regular series races or 1 series race plus the championship race.
4. Championship race will count as double points.
5. Champions will be decided upon completion of the last event.
