Over 300 local students swam, biked, and ran on the sunny morning of Saturday, September 16, celebrating another successful year of fun and fitness in the 12th Annual Mamaroneck Schools Foundation Junior Triathlon.
Students, who ranged in age from 7 through 13, completed a challenging course to cross the finish line at Hommocks Middle School, where they were welcomed by an enthusiastic crowd of parents and friends.
“This is a wonderful and important event that encourages our kids to be healthy, fit, and goal-setters,” said Carolyn Lee, who co-chairs the Event with Tricia DeLaMora. “In every year that passes, we see many happy and proud young athletes, who can’t wait to do it all again. We would like to thank the countless volunteers and local sponsors who have made this event possible for the past 12 years.”
Sponsored by many local businesses, including platinum supporter, Badger Sports Club, the MSF Junior Triathlon has become a much-loved community tradition – each year, some 1,000 people participate, including athletes, volunteers, sponsors, and spectators.
The Mamaroneck Schools Foundation (MSF) is a volunteer, non-profit organization that funds many innovative, teacher-initiated grants each year, across the six schools in the district. The invaluable donations of community members has allowed them to give more than $4.2 million to some 455 projects since 1996 – programs that have brought immeasurable benefits, across all disciplines, to many thousands of students.
