Join forces with Hampton Jitney to set the wheels in motion for success and empowerment

Whether it’s on two feet, two wheels or more, they say the journey is as important as the destination. Meet 75 East End middle school girls who certainly know something about that.

i-tri is a non-profit organization that works with 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls, helping them learn about, and believe in, their own potential by preparing for and completing a youth triathlon.

How this project makes a difference

This goodcircle will insure that every girl in i-tri has the bike she needs for training and racing, and the transportation needed to and from critical training days. Transformed into triathletes after being carefully selected for the free, months-long i-tri program which trains them for a triathlon, many of these girls begin their journey unable to ride bikes. Some must learn to swim. But for all of them, reaching the finish line on race day in July happens because they support and empower each other throughout.

Our Goal

Want to become part of this extraordinary journey?
Let’s start ours on two wheels. Join this goodcircle to raise funds for purchasing and repairing bikes. I-tri prides itself on covering all expenses so the girls can concentrate on training. With your support, we can help set these girls off on an exceptional journey. Who knows where it will end?

Good people. Good business.

Our friends at Hampton Jitney also know a thing or two about journeys – and after backing our project last year, they have generously agreed to join i-tri girls for this year’s journey. Hampton Jitney will once again be providing free transportation to and from training for the i-tri girls – a generous donation worth $15,000.

Thank you!
This project ended 07/15/2016 and raised a total of $15,950

    i-tri is an intensive, multifaceted program, led by professional coaches, nutritionists and educators, that focuses on building self-esteem, athletic training, family outreach and nutrition classes. At an age at which they are often confronted with difficult life choices, i-tri girls are taught to believe in themselves and their peers. They learn to reach inward to find their own strengths and to help others find theirs. Through the program’s rich and comprehensive approach, the girls discover that it’s not only about getting to the finish line, but what you learn and who you become along the way. The program is offered free-of-charge to every participant.
