Griff Shuler and David Daggett at Kids for Kids Triathlon

On Saturday, July 13th, the 17th annual Kids for Kids Triathlon took place at Brookberry Farm in Winston-Salem, with almost 200 participants. Presented by Daggett Shuler, the event is geared towards children aged 7 to 14 years old. The course is scaled down from a traditional triathlon course to reflect more appropriate distances for kids. An article about the event is available here.

David Daggett of Daggett Shuler, Attorneys at Law, announced the race. He and a team of volunteers from Daggett Shuler welcomed each participant crossing the finish line with a championship reception. David is incredibly proud of and grateful for the volunteers that came out to assist.

Of the race, he says, “The race really is not about winners, but rather giving each and every youngster a championship experience and welcoming them to the sport.” An experienced triathlete, David has completed more than 190 triathlons, including 27 Ironman competitions.

Louise Delgado and Hudson Sharpe were the winners for the 7-10 age group, and Jet Francis and Sterling Sharpe won the 11-14 division.

Proceeds from the Kids for Kids Triathlon are donated to charities benefitting children in the community. Two of the recipient charities this year are Moji Coffee and Sally’s Angels.  Over the 17-year history of the race, over $125,000 has been given to local charitable organizations.

Daggett Shuler considers it their privilege to help support the many local efforts to do good work in the Piedmont Triad. The firm strongly believes in setting an example and supporting those working to improve the quality and health of our community.

I would like to take a minute to express my gratitude to the the staff at Daggett Shuler and in particular Cindy Cosgrove. I am not the easiest person in the world to get along with at times, but she was given a gift from above in how to handle people in need of an attitude adjustment. I think she missed her calling, because she would have made a great therapist. She walked me through every step of the complete procedure, and she and Griff Shuler made sure my settlement was both fair and done in a timely manner. When I first spoke to Mr. Shuler I made it perfectly clear that I didn’t even want to go on workers compensation to begin with. I began to understand rather quickly that this is a business, and unfortunately the attorneys for the insurance company make you feel like you’re just a number. I was fortunate to have the team from Daggett Shuler prepare me for what lay ahead, as it was quite a shock. I would recommend Griff to anyone who is looking to be treated with respect, while keeping their dignity intact. As for Cindy Cosgrove, I consider her to be a friend, therapist, financial advisor, and an all around gift from heaven. Thank you all again for your help as well as patience for putting up with me.
