The Therapy and Learning Center, a mission-filled organization that serves children and adults with special needs along with The Jackson Swim Boosters, a non-profit organization promoting swimming in Jackson, are excited to host the Hub City Kids USAT sanctioned Kids Triathlon and Special Needs Try at Union University on August 6 2015 for ages 5-16. Registration https://racesonline.com/events/hub-city-kids-tri/registration
This event will focus on kids’ health, wellness, and spiritual development. This is an opportunity for kids to experience a triathlon locally.
It is widely known that children this day and age need activities to build self-confidence, a healthy lifestyle, and a sense of accomplishment finishing a task….the reality is - sometimes adults still need that too. A triathlon is the perfect blend of activities and competition to achieve this goal! This second year event will have both a traditional USAT sanctioned kids and a I CAN Tri special needs Triathlon.
I CAN TRI triathlon,a special event encouraging and supporting a group of kids who may not typically get the opportunity to participate in a physical competition. We will provide a safe, fun way for children ages 5-18 with special needs and disabilities to perform and participate in a physical fitness activity. These exceptional children will have “buddies” who will assist them as needed through a short swim, bike, and run/walk. How exciting will it be to see a child who has never been given the chance to compete in an event, to cross the finish line and have a gold medal placed around their neck – imagine the sense of accomplishment!
