Dear Friend and Sponsor :
How time flies. Here we are, a few days past Thanksgiving, and we are already thinking about Christmas.
Allow me say how much I appreciate your HELP and SPONSORSHIP extended this season to my grandson, Ben Sayles, World Triathlete. It goes without saying…HE couldn’t have done it without you and is very appreciative of your support.
I’m sure you know that Ben had a great 2013 season with 18 consecutive age group championship wins in Ontario before heading off to the Worlds in London England, in early September.
In London, Ben excelled in his age group. He won a Gold in the Aquathlon (1K Swim and 5K run) and a Silver In the Olympic Distance Triathlon ( 1500 M Swim,40 K Bike and 10 K Run ).In this race he was just 8 seconds behind the winner. I know that you would agree that it was amazing that he did so well.
Ben returned from England September 16th, and immediately went off to the 1st year of his University of Guelph experience. So far he has done very well.
Based on his 2013 achievements, Ben has already qualified for the 2014 World Triathlon Championships being held in Edmonton Alberta in August 2014.
Your financial support and encouragement during 2013 has been nothing but outstanding. I realize that everyone has a long list of requests, but if you could please keep Ben on your “worry list “for support in the coming season, that would be great. As you prepare your 2014 Operating Budget, you could include a specific amount for the support of Ben.
We will do a follow-up with you early in 2014 .
In closing, both Ben and I can’t thank you enough for your generous support this past season.
Have a great winter season and we will be in touch in the new year.
