Our 6th annual Kid’s TRY-athlon was a huge success! 325 try-athletes came out swim, bike and run in honor of Aine. Thank you to all of the kids that gathered pledges for racing – together you raised more than $8,000 to support grieving children. Thanks to all of our volunteers, sponsors, spectators and supporters for helping to create such a great event for our kids!
Congratulations to all of our try-athletes for participating in this great event. Race results can be found here.

Aine loved to be outside doing things. In the winter time she was crazy for sledding and in summer she turned into a fish (when she wasn’t riding her bike or running around with her friends). The Kid’s Try-athlon encompasses the 3 things Aine loved to do all summer: swim, bike and run! Our kid’s TRY-athlon is a race for all kids ages 4 to 15, no matter their athletic ability. It is an opportunity for kids to experience a race without the pressures of worrying if they can make the distances or not – we’ve designed it so that everyone is triumphant!
We think of this event as a tribute to Aine, as a fundraiser AND as an opportunity to get kids moving. We like to believe that the race is helping kids help themselves, while helping other kids. It’s a win-win!!
