St. David’s HealthCare Will Serve as Official Medical Services Provider Of Austin’s Most Popular All-Women’s Triathlon

St. David’s HealthCare, one of the largest hospital systems in Texas, is teaming up with the largest and longest-running women’s triathlon Series in the world. St. David’s HealthCare will serve as the official medical services provider of the 17th Annual Danskin Austin Triathlon, scheduled for June 6, 2010.

“St. David’s HealthCare is the leading provider of women’s healthcare services in Central Texas, so this partnership makes good sense,” Mark Clayton, senior vice president of St. David’s HealthCare, said. “In addition, our comprehensive rehabilitation programs have helped countless athletes get back on track after suffering injuries. We are honored to have the opportunity to serve in this capacity once again.”

This is the second year St. David’s HealthCare has served as the official medical services provider for the Danskin Austin Triathlon. Therapists at St. David’s Rehabilitation Hospital will also provide post-race stretching for all participants, free of charge.

The Danskin Triathlon Series has been inspiring female athletes, both novice and expert, for more than 20 years. The Danskin Austin Triathlon was launched in 1994, making it one of the longest-tenured races in the series. This year, more than 2,000 women are expected to participate.

“The Danskin/Austin triathlon has a very committed following of female athletes in Austin,” Maggie Sullivan, Series Director for Danskin Triathlon Series, said. “It is fitting that we partner with St. David’s HealthCare—a leading healthcare provider in the Austin area—to provide participants with the best medical services out there.”

As part of the weekend activities, the Danskin Austin Triathlon will host a Women’s Expo, which is scheduled for Saturday, June 5—the day before the Danskin Austin Triathlon—from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center. In addition to allowing participants to pick up their Race packets, the Expo has been expanded this year to include a wide array of information about women’s services, including mammography and bone density and cardiac screening for women. Elizabeth Burrell-Mansolo, M.D.—a St. David’s HealthCare family practice physician who will also be participating in the triathlon with “Team St. David’s”—will host an “Ask the Doc” session for women during the Expo.

The Danskin Austin Triathlon is scheduled for Sunday, June 6, 2010 at Walter E. Long Park at Decker Lake. Women interested in participating can register online at www.DanskinWomensTri.com.
