Charitable arm to support youth participation, paratriathlon and elite development
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon today officially announced the launch of its charitable fundraising arm, the USA Triathlon Foundation, which was formally approved as a 501(c)(3) organization to support youth participation in the sport, paratriathlon as a grassroots and Paralympic discipline, and the development of elite athletes through the U.S. National Team pipeline.
The Foundation is designed to improve the general well-being of individuals through programming that supports the multisport lifestyle. Donations and grants will help instill fitness in children in underserved communities across the country, open the doors of participation to aspiring paratriathletes and fuel the Olympic dreams of America’s rising stars.
“Establishing the USA Triathlon Foundation is a milestone achievement, helping to ensure the legacy of our sport. And that starts with supporting the needs of some of our fastest-growing constituent groups,” said Rob Urbach, USA Triathlon CEO. “The Foundation will provide opportunities to those who otherwise may not have access to such programming, and those who require assistance to achieve their dreams in our sport.”
