Brooke Goddard once again participated in the Pinky Swear Foundation triathlon, Saturday, Aug. 3, at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis. Brooke set her goal this year to raise $4,000 and ended up raising $5,350 -- the top fundraiser out of 354 kids that participated. Total raised for the event was $177,000.

Brooke just turned 11 last week, so every event doubled for her this year. She had to swim 200 yards, bike 6 miles and run 1 mile.

This wouldn't be possible without the help of local businesses, friends, family and the Verndale Lions, according to Brooke's grandma, Michelle Goddard.
