By Staff | Jul 13, 2011

Faith in Action Caregivers held its 10th annual triathlon and duathlon on July 9 at Wheeling Park, with local Magnolia High School graduate Cameron Benson claiming first place in record time for his very first triathlon.

The triathlon began with a 400 meter swim in the pool at Wheeling Park, with the second leg a 25K bike course. The race concluded with a 5K run on paved trails and roads in the park, with Benson clocking in with a record time of 1:13.06.

Faith in Action Caregivers supports the independent living of older adults and people with disabilities in Ohio, Marshall, and Belmont counties through the shared ministry of faith communities. All services are provided without charge, regardless of income level.

Funds raised from the race will provide services to those in need of such assistance as escorted transportation, shopping, errands, chores, friendly visiting, telephone reassurance, and respite for family caregivers.
