Mother to Mother Ministry of Beatrice would like to give a big ‘thank you shout out’ to the Togetherhood committee at the YMCA. This committee, headed by Rochelle Bauman, organized a diaper triathlon on Saturday, Aug. 20.
Approximately 30 students from Kindergarten through 8th grade participated in a fun morning. They biked and ran a mile from the Big Blue Water Park to the river bridge and back on the trail – in between swimming laps at the water park. High school athletes from several sports volunteered to cheer, time and guide the participants.
Registration required a donation of a box of diapers or cash, which was presented to Mother to Mother following the event.
Mother to Mother supports low and middle income parents with friendship and moral, physical and material assistance.
This donation of diapers for parents of infants and toddlers is greatly appreciated and needed in our community.
So thank you to the YMCA volunteers, BHS drill, cross country and swim teams for your assistance and Security First Bank for the donation of water for each participant.
Kathy Thimm, Mother to Mother Ministries board chairperson
