10th Annual Youth Triathlon

Kid's Impacted


Now in its 11th year, The VHBG Youth Triathlon is a beginner-focused youth race which has a large impact on the local community.  100% of the revenue for this event goes to the VA Home for Boys & Girls.  Over the past 10 years, this race has not only introduced the local community to triathlon but also greatly impacted the kids who reside at VHBG and participate every year.

The Impact

The VHBG Youth Triathlon was founded out of a desire to impact the mission of a local non-profit doing good work in the community.  Since 1846, the VA Home For Boys & Girls has been serving children in crisis by providing stability within a teaching-family model.  The VHBG Youth Triathlon furthers this mission by introducing these children to triathlon / fitness, increasing awareness for the mission, and raising funds.  All of these goals directly align with the Live Red Foundation mission as well.
