i-tri’s Giving Day & Dine For A Cause Week

i-tri — a local organization that works with middle-school girls, boosting self-esteem through the sport of triathlon — is hosting a “Dine for a Cause Week” leading up to its annual Giving Day on October 27.

Giving Day invites community members to empower the next group of i-tri girls. The event will be streamed live, starting at 11 AM, on i-tri’s social media channels as Founder and Visionary Chief Officer Theresa Roden interviews community members and selected i-tri alumni who have supported her dream throughout the years.

You’ll hear from individuals who have invested in the future and the success stories of those who benefitted from their generosity.

As part of Giving Day, anyone who donates $100 or more on Thursday, October 27, will be entered into the Giving Day raffle, where community partners at Athleta, Llana, Scarlette Rose Spa, Whites Apothecary, Stella and Ruby, and more have donated products as part of a giveaway portion of the Day. Giving Day is fueled by Honest Plate’s Chef Nick Riesini, SagTown Coffee, and Scott’s Protein Balls, who have donated products for those behind the scenes.

On the days leading up to the annual Giving Day Stream, i-tri is hosting “Dine For a Cause Week” from Wednesday, October 19, through Wednesday, October 26. Community members will have the opportunity to eat with a purpose as partner restaurants donate a percentage of one featured dish to i-tri’s cause.

“We are so blown away by the generosity of our partnered restaurants; really coming together to support the young women of our community and helping i-tri to provide all of the necessary training, education, and support to help them reach their goals. When SHE thrives, we all Thrive,” said Roden.

Restaurants and items include Lulu Kitchen & Bar’s heirloom cauliflower, Sen’s vegetable spring rolls, and K Pasa’s spicy rojo chips and salsa.

These events aim to raise $300,000 to support the equipment, training, education, and transportation that is provided free to empower every i-tri girl.

i-tri focuses on working with middle-school girls because research shows that the largest drop in self-esteem occurs during early adolescence. Along the journey to the finish line of a youth distance triathlon, the girls discover that they are capable, strong and brave. They make connections that show them that while they are unique, they’re definitely not alone. Side by side, with new friends, i-tri girls learn to go inward to find their own strengths and to help others find theirs.
