Organised by Set Up Events, the PPD Beach2Battleship Half has now sold out. In response to demand and to help give back to worthy causes, the race organisers have made 50 charity slot entries available
The PPD Beach2Battleship Half moves into season number five in 2012 after four successful years of bringing the Half distance to the Port City of Wilmington, North Carolina. Complimented by a Full distance, the Half event aims to bring the 2012 triathlon season to an end in a big way!
Global drug and contract research organisation PPD Inc supports the Beach2Battleship event as its title sponsor to educate the public on the vital role of clinical research and participation in clinical trials to deliver new medicines to improve health and save lives, and to support the local community. The event’s net proceeds are contributed to the Wilmington Family YMCA.
“We want to support non-profit agencies as much as we can,” David Grange, CEO of PPD said. “What a beautiful thing to sponsor something tied to what we help do.”
