i-tri’s Riverhead Building Supply Hamptons Youth Triathlon

i-tri, the community-based program that fosters self-respect, personal empowerment, self-confidence, positive body image, and healthy lifestyle choices for middle school-aged girls, will host the Riverhead Building Supply Hamptons Youth Triathlon on Saturday, July 13. The triathlon will begin at approximately 7:30 AM at Long Beach in Sag Harbor and is open to kids aged 10 to 17. The super sprint-distance triathlon features a 300-yard swim, 6-mile bike ride, and 1.5-mile run.

Theresa Roden, i-tri’s Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, looks forward to the annual event. “Each year, triathlon day is incredible. Seeing the girls transform over the course of the program from February to race day is phenomenal. And this year, our program team has been working with so many more participants, which really is a testament to i-tri and the need for this program in our communities.” Roden went on to say that she invites “everyone to witness the finish line moments for yourselves on race day — please come down to cheer these incredible 6th, 7th, and 8th graders as they cross the finish line.”

The RBS Hamptons Youth Triathlon also wraps up i-tri’s “Help Her Cross the Finish Line” Spring Campaign, which kicked off this past April at their Mentoring Day. Enrollment in i-tri this year across its 13 partner schools from Mastic to Montauk has increased by 20 percent, revealing the great need for and efficacy of the organization. The cost for each young person to participate is approximately $3000. The goal of the campaign is to raise funds to provide the girls with bicycles, swim caps, athletic gear, and other resources to compete in the program’s hallmark event, The Hamptons Youth Triathlon. The fundraising goal is $120,000, and i-tri seeks donations between now and July 13. Donations can be made by visiting itrigirls.org.
