Making a Difference One Donation at a Time
The sport of triathlon is ingrained in your lifestyle and has provided you with years of fitness, competition and camaraderie. With your assistance, USA Triathlon can ensure the next generation — youth athletes, paratriathletes and Olympic hopefuls — enjoy similar opportunities and experiences within the fastest-growing sport in the U.S. Olympic Movement.
Your donation supports USA Triathlon’s belief that every child should have the chance to participate, each paratriathlete can harness the inspiration to partake in this great sport and every elite athlete should chase his or her Olympic dream.As a supporter of USA Triathlon, you can feel an extra sense of pride knowing you play a vital role in sending America’s best athletes to the Olympic Games, providing paratriathletes with the right training and racing gear and introducing triathlon to aspiring youth athletes through multisport camps and clinics … To reach these goals, USA Triathlon must have your support.
USA Triathlon believes every aspiring youth athlete should have the opportunity to participate in our life-changing sport. Many children swim, ride a bike and run on a daily basis. Putting each discipline together provides a fun fitness outlet that can jumpstart a healthy lifestyle for years to come. With your support, USA Triathlon staff and programming will help solidify the future of our sport — while introducing a lifetime of health and fitness — by providing equipment and funding camps, clinics, race fees and travel for aspiring athletes. Youth triathlon program support at the grassroots level can help take a bite out of the rising childhood obesity epidemic.
The first campaign for youth is Koins 4 Kids. More information coming soon.
With paratriathlon headed toward Paralympic Games inclusion in 2016, interest in this inspirational sport is at an all-time high. USA Triathlon has been a long-time supporter of disabled athletes, and this commitment has never been stronger with the recent addition of paratriathlon-specific staff and programming. Our sport provides needed competitive and fitness outlets for hundreds of amazing athletes, however the expense of equipment and travel to events, camps, and clinics can be a hurdle for many. Your support can make paratriathlon participation possible for some of the nation’s most remarkable athletes, and can help USA Triathlon change the lives of disabled athletes by introducing them to the sport through a number of outreach programs.
Olympic Hopefuls: Dream
Elite triathlete Gwen Jorgensen realized her Olympic dream in 2011 when she crossed the finish line at the ITU World Triathlon London to lock up a spot on the U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team. Gwen started competing in triathlon in 2010 after being recruited by Olympian Barb Lindquist for USA Triathlon's Collegiate Recruitment Program, part of the elite development pipeline within the organization. With USA Triathlon’s support, Gwen put her career as a CPA at Ernst & Young on hold and was able to focus on training and racing as she developed into one of the world’s best. Alongside USA Triathlon, you can support the dream of the next wave of Olympic hopefuls by providing funding for equipment, training camps, international travel and more.
