TRI SOMETHING NEW AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE
NEW to Stanly County, the Y and Great Clips are proud to present the STANLY KIDS TRI for children ages 3-14. Through this event, partiicpants will have the opportunity to swim, bike, and run while making a difference in the lives of other kids in their community. Every child should have the opportunity to experience a summer filled with fun, excitement, and adventure. Unfortunately many children in our community never get that chance. Participants in the STANLY KIDS TRI will help make this happen! Each child will not only train to complete the adventure of a triathlon but will also raise dollars to Send a Kid to Camp this summer who would not otherwise have that chance. All funds raised will benefit the Open Doors Scholarship Program for Summer Camp at the Stanly County Family YMCA.
