Latest Updates (Main text is further down):
Sunday 30th August: Congratulations to the "Malmesbury 12" - everyone completed the event in style and there was a great atmosphere at the event. Pictures updates on their way.
Thursday 27th August: Good luck to all 12 of our participants at the Malmesbury Triathlon on Sunday. We have now raised over £ 3000 from this and other JustGiving pages, and we are aiming for £ 5000 in order to enable CCS Adoption to give the vital help for the children who need it so much. We really value your generosity, and it really helps transform the lives of children - thankyou.
Mon 27th July: Congratulation to the 18 people, juniors and seniors, who took part in the Bristol Trathlon Festival at the weekend. Great effort by all, please keep the sponsor money rolling in !
Our next triathlon is at Malmesbury on 30th August, so if you wish to take part or sponsor us, you're very welcome ! To take part, please get in touch asap, thanks.
Welcome to the CCS Triathletes 2009 Main Fundraising Page.
This is the main page to give your donation. Other members of the group have also created their own pages, just search from the JustGiving main page for the CCS Adoption charity to find their pages.
Most of us are first-time triathletes, taking part in either a full or relay triathlon to raise funds for the CCS Adoption charity. This is a small charity that does vital work really well to place some of the 4000 "Children Who Wait" for adoption into new, permanent families. Without this kind of help, many children who have had a difficult start in life wait a very long time, sometimes indefinitely, to be adopted.
Any money raised goes directly to the charity's work to help these children.
We will update this page regularly, and for further information, please visit our website at www.ccstriathletes.org.uk
This year we have also added events for young people aged 8 to 16
Our main triathlon events this year are:

If you'd like to take part, we'd be glad to hear from you, and support you all the way.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: CCS Adoption gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
So please sponsor us ! Every donation makes a difference to a child's life. Thankyou.
