THANK YOU AND GOODBYE
It is with a heavy heart and many fond memories that we are announcing that the Finger Lakes Triathlon is officially shutting down. Thank you all so much for your support of this wonderful charity event over the last 17 years. This event has been the primary fundraiser for the Mary M. Gooley Hemophilia Center and the money raised along with the community awareness of our Center has been wonderful in helping us to fulfill our mission and serve our patients. We are very proud that the Finger Lakes Triathlon grew into one of the largest and most respected triathlon events in the region along with being one of the longest standing continuous triathlons in the country (and one of the few left that was 100% for charity).
While the Finger Lakes Triathlon was still doing extremely well, the Center determined that we don’t have the internal resources anymore to organize such a large and complex event to the standards that we have built over the years. Moving forward, the Center will be focusing on our walk event which in addition to being easier to manage, is also much more inclusive for our patients and their families to participate in. If any of you are interested in being part of this event either as a participant, donor or sponsor, please: CLICK HERE
Thank you all again for being part of the Finger Lakes Triathlon. This event will forever be part of the legacy of the Mary M. Gooley Hemophilia Center and we are very grateful for the racers, volunteers, sponsors, Ontario County Sheriff, Canandaigua Emergency Squad, Wegmans, Score-This!!! and the City of Canandaigua (and surrounding community) who all helped make this event so great for 17 straight years!
If you are interested in learning more about our Center and bleeding disorders please don’t hesitate to reach out. While hemophilia is in our name, we treat other bleeding disorders, many of which can go undiagnosed in people who are unnecessarily suffering from excessive bleeding and bruising. We encourage anyone with symptoms to speak with their primary care doctor and inquire about our care at the Mary M. Gooley Hemophilia Center. www.hemocenter.org
Keep swimming, biking and running!
