Tri 4 Schools is a local non-profit, started by a Verona mother, that encourages kids to live a healthy and active lifestyle by participating in multisport competitions. Tri 4 Schools also supports health and nutrition programs within local schools by donating money for everything from new equipment to school gardens.
Since starting in 2011, Tri 4 Schools has helped more than 1,100 kids complete a triathlon, and donated nearly $28,000 to school health and fitness programs. While the organization focuses on Dane County schools, all children are encouraged to participate regardless of where they attend school.
Dean is a proud sponsor of Tri 4 Schools’ five events in 2013, including the Waunakee Kids Triathlon and the Middleton Kids Triathlon.
