Optimist Club’s Event July 27 & 28 Supports Coronado’s Youth

 For those who want to participate as an athlete or sponsor in the 48th annual Optimist Club of Coronado’s Sports Fiesta, the time to sign up is now. The event raises funds that are then donated to local youth activities, including roughly 50 clubs, teams and projects, such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, Coronado schools’ athletic teams and club teams, scholarship programs, robotics, oratorical and essay contests and many more.

The Sports Fiesta features three main events; A mini-triathlon, a separate 5K and a separate 1-mile rough-water swim. Events are based at Sunset Park, but there is also a volleyball tournament at Central Beach and a Lawn Bowling tournament at the John D. Spreckels Center next to the Coronado Library.

The Sports Fiesta’s triathlon, which takes place July 27, is the longest continuously running triathlon in the U.S., predating Hawaii’s Iron Man by seven years. It includes a 400-yard ocean swim, a 1-mile run on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches and a 4-mile bike race on Naval Air Station, North Island.

Businesses can take part as sponsors on a number of levels: Gold Medal Sponsors are those that contribute more than $1000. Silver Medal Sponsors provide between $400 and $999, and Bronze Medal Sponsors come in at $250 to $399. Sports Fiesta Contributors donate up to $250. This provides the bulk of annual funds the Optimist Club of Coronado distributes to the youth of Coronado.

To be a part of history while supporting Coronado’s youth, you can register as an athlete or sponsor at optimistclubofcoronado.org.
