Kemah Triathlon Weekend Olympic, Sprint & 5K
October 7 - 8, 2017
 Kemah, TX

My name is Carson Padilla, I will be racing at the Kemah Youth Triathlon October, 7, 2017. 

I am raising money for a project at the Folsom City Zoo Santcuary. This project was the idea of Chuck Harrison.  Sadly, Chuck passed away early in July and I would like for his idea to come to life.  Chuck was married to a friend of my Dad's, Karen.  Karen and my dad went to school together and have been friends since they were 6 years old.  Chuck had been working with the Friends of Folsom Zoo to raise money to create a sluice box exhibit so that kids could also explore CA mining during their visit to the zoo.  This summer I was able to visit the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary.  It's an incredible zoo, and I agree that adding an exhibit like this is a great idea.  With your donation we can help raise the additional money needed to get the project finished.

Please donate so that we can help the Friends of the Folsom Zoo complete this project, and together we can help Chuck's dream become reality.
