Where’s Amy?: Tuxedo Brothers Triathlon
“Where’s Amy?” …I was cheering my heart out for the amazing participants of the Eagle Creek Sprint/Tuxedo Brothers Triathlon. Since 1984, Tuxedo Brothers of Zionsville have managed more than 1,000 events that benefit service and charitable organizations. They have learned during their 30 years that to be successful, events must be fun and support a worthy cause. Runners Forum, a Carmel running store, is a longtime supporter of Tuxedo Brothers races and jumped at the opportunity to not only help sponsor the event but participate as well. The race was exciting and it was fun to witness the top male and female winners pour the traditional Chocolate Milk over their heads – thanks to the American Dairy Association, who also donated hundreds of cold milk to all the participants and volunteers. I also enjoyed chatting with Kent King, director of community outreach at Endurance House in Zionsville and Fishers. King’s tent was a popular hot spot for runners and was stocked with the latest running merchandise, education and fitness information for participants. The highlight of the day for me was watching my pal Jenni Berebitsky cross the finish line with excited cheers from “J Team” – her loyal family and friends. Berebitsky is one tough cookie who can’t run, swim or bike because of ALS. She’s a true superhero to so many because she won’t let anything crush her goals and dreams. “Where’s Amy?” had a blast capturing the day with photos and encourages everyone to attend a triathlon for inspiration. The participants are dedicated, determined and disciplined and in the end drenched in chocolate milk – a sign that life is too short not to have fun and make a difference.
