Successful triathlon for Manown

Marlene Manown recently completed the Black Canyon Sprint Triathlon. She had dual purposes for participating in the triathlon — to celebrate her 75th birthday and to raise money for a scholarship earmarked for young women to attend a Colorado Outward Bound School course. She completed the triathlon in 2:06 and she raised $10,982 for the scholarship fund. Pretty successful in both endeavors.
