Of Revenue Goes to VHBG

7th Annual Youth Triathlon

Kid's Impacted

VHBG YOUTH TRIATHLON

COVID UPDATE: After much deliberation, we have decided to cancel the 2020 VHBG Youth Triathlon to protect the children living at the VA Home for Boys & Girls.   COVID-19 infecting this small community would be disastrous.  This decision was a tough one as 100% of the revenue from this event goes directly to VHBG’s mission which is very important to us.  In lieu of racing, we encourage you to make a donation to VHBG at https://vhbg.org/homepage/give/.  Also, we encourage you to race the  West Creek Youth Duathlon (Run-Bike-Run) on August 9th – learn more.

Now in its 9th 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 8 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.
