The 5th annual Tri-My-Best Adaptive Triathlon took place on Sunday, September 8, at the Washington University Athletic Complex. This inspiring event is a collaboration between St. Louis Children's Hospital's Carol and Paul Hatfield Cerebral Palsy Sports and Rehabilitation Center and the Washington University Triathlon and Synapse Clubs. The goal is to help kids with movement disorders to get moving!
Many of our pediatric orthopedic physicians and staff came out to support the event, and cheer on the 70+ athletes that participated. Pictured below (from left to right) is pediatric orthopedic nurse educator Melissa Eagan, BSN, RN, ONC, and pediatric orthopedic specialists Perry Schoenecker, MD, and Christi Abeln, MS, APRN, BC. Congratulations to all the athletes!
