With the support of the amazing staff and volunteers at the Mississauga YMCA, I started up a youth triathlon program in 2008. Many of the kids had never ridden a bike or knew how to swim. Each week during the program, you’d see them become stronger and more confident.
Today was the 8th annual Tri at the Y! Check out the smiles on the faces of the kids. Everyone got a medal and a t-shirt. You’ll see those t-shirts around the Y for months.
This is what the Y is all about: inclusive, having fun and providing opportunities for ALL kids to be healthy & active.
