G9

Gold In September (G9) is dedicated to growing awareness, inspiring action and funding research for childhood cancer. Gold is the national color for pediatric cancer and September is the recognized National Childhood Cancer Awareness month; together they make G9. Did you know?

  • Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S.
  • Pediatric cancer rates are up more than 30% since 1975.
  • Only 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget is allocated to childhood cancer.
  • 95% of childhood cancer survivors struggle with life-long health issues and side effects, some fatal, as a result of the treatment that cured them.
  • Only 3 new drugs have been approved in the last 20 years to specifically treat childhood cancers.
G9 funds early-phase clinical trials at leading pediatric oncology centers across the country. G9 believes in giving hospitals and researchers the support needed to conduct life-saving research to make safer, more effective therapies available to children now because kids can’t afford to wait.

G9

Race Day Events and the town of Lake Mills have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following recommendations from Wisconsin State Department of Public Health as they work with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to prevent the spread of this virus. The safety and well-being of our participants, staff, and volunteers is always of utmost importance and therefore we have decided to postpone the Lake Mills Triathlon. We are tentatively planning for August 23rd and are hoping to know more by mid-June. We will update you as soon as we have more information regarding the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 and how it may further affect the Lake Mills Triathlon.

As such, participants will be given the option to defer your individual Lake Mills Triathlon entry to 2021, transfer to the new event date, or donate your registration fee. Further details regarding these options and how to proceed will be sent to all registered participants.

We appreciate your continued support, and we will update you as we learn more and finalize event details with the town of Lake Mills.
