YMCA Summer Triathlon Series for Kids returns in 2024

By  | 

The Woodlands Family YMCA is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Summer Triathlon Series for Kids and Teens, will once again be Presented by Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands. For more than 20 years, the YMCA has hosted the Annual Kids Triathlon. Due to the popularity of this race, we are providing youth additional opportunities to enjoy the sports of swimming, biking and running. With the opening of the new Aquatic Center at the Holcomb Family YMCA, the former Kids Duathlon will now be a Kids Triathlon in 2024!!

“We are extremely grateful for the generosity and support of Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands as the Presenting Sponsor,” said Blake Kelly, YMCA Community Development Director. “The YMCA Summer Triathlon Series will benefit the YMCA’s Annual Campaign, which ensures everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the Y. Proceeds from the event will help us to create a stronger community, double the impact, and bring about meaningful change. Swim/Bike/Run for a CAUSE.”

“Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands is proud to participate in the YMCA Kid’s Triathlon Series,” said Jenny Bailey, Community Liaison at Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands. “Each event will give more kids the opportunity to participate in a fun competitive triathlon. We are excited that the YMCA is continuing the series in 2024 and that we can contribute to such a worthy cause.”
