Little Big Helper

Five-year-old assists more than 1000 runners during triathlon.

As a members of the Weaver Lake Conservation Association, Karson Frokjer and his wife Nicole regularly work many volunteer events around the lakes, but these last couple of years they have had an extra helping hand from their daughter, 5-year-old Olivia.

Last year, Olivia assisted her parents for the first time during the annual triathlon, sponsored by Life Time Fitness, by cheering on runners. But this year she really went the extra mile by passing out Gatorade as more than 1000 runners passed by her house. “The neighbors were really impressed,” Karson Frokjer says.
