Kick Cabin Fever Indoor Triathlon held in Mayville
MAYVILLE – The sixth annual Kick Cabin Fever Indoor Triathlon was held on Feb. 22 at the Chautauqua Health and Fitness Center in Mayville.
Participants completed a 45-minute competitive event to support mental health awareness. The event included a 15-minute swim (lap pool), 15-minute bike (upright spin) and a 15-minute run (treadmill) with total miles tallied for prizes to overall winners in various categories.
More than ever, this was a great year to “Beat Those Winter Blues” with a fun activity that anyone can accomplish. Individuals and teams of 2 or 3 participated to bring a greater awareness to those suffering from depression, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and other mental health challenges.
Kick Cabin Fever began six years ago after Marty Miller took his own life due to SAD. Miller was a great person willing to help anyone in need. It is imperative to see the signs of depression and address it with loved ones. Miller’s son Brandon and brother Andy were participants in this year’s event, making the day a brighter memory for the cause.
