My daughters just participated in their first Just TRYAN It triathlon and what a fabulous experience it was! Not only was the staff so friendly and organized but the course was very manageable. We were also grateful for the sponsors and their participation and donations. It was a great way for my children to be a part of our community and give back to families in need. We will definitly be back next year!

Our family has been involved with JTI since 2010. All three of my children have raced and fundraised for such an amazing and worthwhile cause. Proceeds go towards helping families financially while caring for their child with cancer. A worthwhile cause to volunteer and donate!

JUST TRYAN IT is an amazing organization that gets kids involved young in the world of triathlons and in the world of giving. My boys have participated in the last two years, and understand how fortunate they are to be in a position to fundraise and give their time and raise donations. Highly recommend this home-grown and powerfully growing movement!
