About This Activity

In September of 2014, Jason Rogers, a Mattie’s Mission board member, is planning a triathlon from Seattle, WA to Jacksonville, FL known as Tri4Mattie. This 3100-mile trip will involve swimming, biking, and running across the United States and should take approximately 33 days to complete. This trip will be in memory of 6 year old Mattie Goble and in support of Mattie’s Mission. The trek will involve an RV, support vehicle and multiple support staff. Major cities along the journey will include:

·         Billings, Montana

·         Omaha, Nebraska

·         St. Louis, Missouri

·         Nashville, Tennessee

·         Huntsville, Alabama

·         Atlanta, Georgia

·         Waycross, Georgia

·         Jacksonville, Florida

Jason Rogers is from Waycross, GA. In 2011 he completed a cross-country bicycle ride of 2700 miles from San Diego, CA to St. Simons Island, GA in support of the Wounded Warrior Project. The ride raised funds and awareness for our wounded military men and women.  In 2013 he completed a ride from Key West, FL to Canada that was a total distance of 2200 miles. This ride was in support of the Waycross, GA YMCA Camp Reveille, a camp for underprivileged children in the Waycross area. 

The triathlon across America will raise funds for Mattie’s Mission while also creating awareness for childhood cancer and allow us to share the love of Christ outside of our home state of Georgia. The ride is scheduled to start on the 24th of August in Seattle, WA and is scheduled to finish in Jacksonville, FL in late September during Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
