Thank you to Hidden Springs Swim Club for supporting RODS Racing by becoming our first Rods Jr. team. "KIDS HELPING KIDS" is very powerful. Our youth has the compassion to help those in need and compete for more than ribbons. I am so proud of the team for putting Rods Jr. on their swim caps to help increase awareness about what Rods does...Race for Orphans with Down Syndrome....making it possible for a child to be adopted by a loving family. I appreciated the opportunity to talk to the kids today about Rods and bring out our RODS RV for today's event. For more information: rodsracing.org/trace
Famous Idaho Potatoes fueling our kids..thank you for your sponsorship!

Check out Badwater 4 Good Water as RODS team member, Lisa, is running to bring good water to orphans. She is on her last leg of her 600 mile run in 12 days in Death Valley where temps are 124 degrees F. Please support this dynamo with a $1 donation (if all 'likes' donated, she's be thrilled!). Lisa is on our Idaho RODS Racing team, title sponsor Famous Idaho Potatoes and we are so proud of what she is doing. Lisa is a big believer of using Idaho potatoes for her Ultra Races. Way to go Lisa!

In case you missed it - check out our 4th of July blog post here with some of our teams and fans stories and family traditions!
From Mollie Mollington:
"I don’t know about you, but for some reason 4th July doesn't seem as stressful as Thanksgiving or Christmas. Maybe it is the summer sunshine or being able to go outdoors. Maybe folks are worrying about when to start the grill rather than which sales to hit up first. Maybe everyone is feeling blessed to live in a country where each and every person is celebrated and able to make choices in their day-to-day lives. Often times it is easy to forget how other cultures do not encourage individualism or liberty. How certain conditions might make them ostracized from their community. So this 4th of July, take a moment to appreciate the USA for being the amazing ‘Land of the free and home of the brave.’ You guys are a lucky bunch."
From all of us on the RODS Racing Team, we wish your family a safe and Happy Independence Day.
Kelly Mokashi A special thanks to our wonderful team of social media advocates for RODS! Pt Mollie and Joshua Harris
