Triathlete Dana Jaros
MEET VETERAN TRIATHLETE DANA JAROS
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR THE PLEASANT PRAIRIE TRIATHLON ON JUNE 24 AND 25

Dana Jaros is a veteran triathlete at just 24 years of age. Having just completed her second Boston Marathon last month, Dana will be competing in the Pleasant Prairie Triathlon on Sunday, June 25, 2017. Danaís reason for competing may surprise you. While the Pleasant Prairie race is right in Danaís neighborhood, itís the fact that the race helps support the Therapeutic Recreation program where Dana has worked for the past three years that gets her moving.

ďIím a disabled athlete myself. I will do what I can to draw attention and support to the Therapeutic program to help others. Itís a phenomenal program,Ē said Jaros. Dana is doing just that. A portion of the proceeds from the Pleasant Prairie Triathlon help support the Therapeutic Recreation program which provides day camp, after school care, respite and adult day programming for approximately 100 youth and adults with special needs.

The event is still in great need of volunteers. To learn more about volunteering or to register, please contact Erin Winch at volunteer@plprairie.com or click the links below. Volunteers are needed Saturday, June 24 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 25 from 4:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
