WWCX Cyclocross Festival and Women Celebration Race
The Washington Women of Cross (WWCX) is excited to announce the third annual WWCX Cyclocross Festival and Women Celebration Race on Saturday, August 29, at Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore, WA.
The Washington Women of Cross Cyclocross Festival is an event to promote and provide an opportunity for women to learn about, experience and participate in cyclocross as well as celebrate the women who participate and race cyclocross at all levels.
This year the WWCX Festival proceeds will benefit Justice and Soul – a local non-profit dedicated to teaching job skills and supporting victims of human trafficking of young women abroad and in the U.S. (http://www.justiceandsoul.org/) and the new WWCX Junior Girls Cyclocross Scholarship Program to support girls’ local and national cyclocross racing participation and aspirations.
