The kids were excited, once again, to participate in the St Jude’s Trikeathon with their class last week. Malia participated in the event last year and had a fabulous time. It was the first time she actually learned to ride her tricycle so it was a great learning experience for her. The newbie mom in me (at the time) didn’t realize she was old enough for a tricycle (or bicycle) so she was a little late in the game.
Max, on the other hand, has been pushing himself to ride at her pace for awhile now. He’s exceeded her with his strong legs but don’t tell her that. 🙂
They were both ready to tackle the trikeathon with all their might.
How cute are these kids in their bikes?
Here is some information about St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, from their website:
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
