During a brief presentation ceremony, Pleasant Prairie Village Administrator Mike Pollocoff, on behalf of the Pleasant Prairie Triathlon, presented a check in the amount of $25,023.92 to the Therapeutic Recreation Advisory Council (TRACS). The group will use the proceeds from the Pleasant Prairie Triathlon to provide continued support for Therapeutic Recreation programs and services in the Village of Pleasant Prairie. TRACS is a charitable organization comprised of community members that are interested in supporting the special needs community.

TRACS played a vital role in staffing the 2007 Pleasant Prairie Triathlon with over 300 volunteers. TRACS also coordinates volunteers for other special events throughout the year. “The volunteers that come out to help are amazing,” commented Erin Winch, Therapeutic Recreation Director for the Village of Pleasant Prairie. “They are enthusiastic and generous with their time and talents. We could not succeed without them.” Winch added, “We would like to publicly thank the volunteers, Mike Pollocoff and the Pleasant Prairie Triathlon for their show of support for special needs services in our community.”
