The Storm Lake Hy-Noon Kiwanis is holding a kickoff event for their upcoming triathlon/duathlon event on Monday, April 26th at 12:15pm at the corner of 5th and Russell Streets.

Proceeds from the 9th annual competition, scheduled for August 21st, will be used to build a new park at that location.

The kickoff event conference will give a run-down about the summer triathlon/duathlon, and highlight the importance of the Kiwanis in the community. Triathlon/Duathlon coordinator Duane Queen will give in-depth details about the triathlon/duathlon, and will also answer questions. Other Hy-Noon Kiwanis members will also be in attendance.

In previous years, the triathlon/duathlon has raised money to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus worldwide. Last year's event was canceled due to COVID-19.
