    Bridget Inspires Grant

    The Bridget Inspires Grant supports young female triathletes and honors Bridget Dawson, who was a world-class triathlete who made a significant impact on the growing sport and was admired by many in the community.

    Youth Pillar Grants

    USA Triathlon Foundation Pillar Grants support programs and individuals who encourage youth participation.

    The impact this program has on the kids’ experiences allows them to learn tough life lessons and develop mental strength and courage, which will be applied on and off the race course.
