On Saturday, July 16th, attorney David Daggett of Daggett Shuler Law appeared on Triad Today to tell the Triad about the upcoming Smiley Triathlon Festival Weekend. Kristen Martin and Rob King appeared with David to share their excitement about the event. Kristen Martin State Farm and Bob King Motors are the proud title sponsors of the weekend. Watch the segment:
The Smiley Triathlon Festival Weekend encompasses two great events: the Kids for Kids Triathlon on July 23rd, and the Smiley Sprint Triathlon on July 24th. It will be held at the Clemmons West Pool and open to the entire Winston-Salem community.
The Smiley Sprint Triathlon was founded by David Daggett to honor the memory of his close friend Richard Smiley, who passed away due to brain cancer several years ago. At the time, there were no adult triathlons being held in the Winston-Salem area, and David wanted to keep Richard’s memory alive while raising funds for brain cancer research.
