In March 15 new girls joined the i-tri alumni girls and started on a journey that would lead them to the finish line of a youth distance triathlon. Along the way- the girls forged strong bonds, opened their minds and hearts to new ways of thinking and seeing the world and tested the limits of their courage and strength. Yesterday all who witnessed this AMAZING group of young women- in their team uniforms- bravely entering the water of Gardners Bay and swimming the daunting distance of 300 yards, biking 7 miles and running 1.5 miles, were moved and inspired by their accomplishment! Yesterday these girls proved to themselves, their friends and families that they could do ANYTHING that they put their minds and hearts into! Even though i-tri is about competing in a triathlon- the true benefits go way further than one race-along the way- they have become confident, self assured young women who can not wait to mentor the next group of i-tri girls!
