Kaptivating Kidz: Kiara's Kause

Summer vacation is on the horizon and that means kids are dreaming of camps and no homework but some are expecting more out of their time off.

Springfield 10-year-old Kiara Wilcox is participating in six triathlons this summer to raise money for Doernbecher's Children's Hospital Foundation.

So what are you doing this summer?

Kiara's first triathlon is set for June 10th in Eugene where she will swim 150 yards, ride her bike four miles and run one more.
