Children's Day Tri for NIH and YMCA Charities
POSTED: 4/21/14 11:53 AM

We are pleased to announce the First Annual Children's Day Triathlon presented by the NIH Recreation and Welfare Association and the YMCA of Greater Washington.

Who: 8-12 year olds
What: Kids Triathlon including a 50m swim, 1.65mi bike, and a 0.5mi run
When: June 8, 2014 (National Children's Day)
Where: YMCA Bethesda-Chevy Chase, 9401 Old Georgetown Rd.

The Children’s Day Triathlon seeks to encourage physically healthier lifestyles for children, while raising money to support charities that also benefit children. The money raised by children through this event will be donated to youth programs at the YMCA and NIH-associated charities.

Fueled by our mission of “Kids raising money for kids,” there will be a fundraising commitment for all entrants. Each athlete has the opportunity to create his or her own fundraising page online. This will provide them with the ability to be actively involved in supporting the interests of the event’s Charities. We hope that by raising money to help fellow children, who may be less privileged or sick, we will instill crucial values into our community’s children.

Fellow triathletes, we need volunteers like you!

We need 20-30 volunteers to donate a few hours on a Sunday morning to ensure that the race course is safe for our small participants and manage/minimize the chaos that is bound to breakout! Specifically, we will need volunteers in/around the transition area, on the bike course, and on the run course to direct participants. We also need volunteers to direct parking prior to and after the event, as well as assist in pre- and post-race activities. This event wouldn't be possible without you! So please, fill out the Google form at the link below if you're interested:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/19j5dVhrulmMmT6s0EbCk8Yh48a38eVjdwlVtDIeu8ug/viewform?usp=send_form

We'll send out additional details to you by June 1st! If you know any children that would be interested in participating, please forward the registration link we have provided below. And don't forget to "like us" on Facebook!

About the Event:
This kids-only triathlon is a cooperative event between the NIH R and W Foundation, and YMCA of Bethesda-Chevy Chase for those ages 7-12. Inspired by the federal government's "Let's Move" Campaign, the event seeks to encourage physically healthier lifestyles for children, while raising money to support charities that also benefit children and their health. The money raised by children through this event will be donated to youth programs at the YMCA, as well as the NIH-associated charities.

Fueled by our mission of “Kids raising money for kids,” there will also be a fundraising commitment for all entrants. Each athlete has the opportunity to create his or her own fundraising page online. This will provide them with the ability to be actively involved in supporting the interests of the event’s Charities. We hope that by raising money to help fellow children, who may be less privileged or sick, we will instill crucial values into our community’s children.
