Join forces with Hampton Jitney to support 140 middle school girls on their journey to possible!
At a critical age for self-esteem building, i-tri works with middle school girls to tap into their remarkable potential by training for the Hamptons Youth Triathlon. Over the course of a few short months, i-tri girls will go from thinking “I can’t”, to knowing “I can”.
Many of the i-tri girls will learn to swim and ride a bike for the first time! This requires not just volunteers but certified professional instructors in swimming, running and cycling.
The focus of this goodcircle project is to fund the girl’s summer training, including professional trainers’ fees and their transportation to training. i-tri ensures that all coaches are trained and certified in their specialties, and that they offer the consistency needed to form relationships with the girls, acting as mentors and friends. The program is completely free to all girls selected.
How this project makes a difference
More important than the journey in miles is the journey the participants take to find their voice.
“The best part for me is seeing the changes in my daughter — she has become more confident and able to express herself. This is a program that has opened doors for her and helped her to foster good friendships.” – i-tri parent
The total cost of the i-tri summer training – a price tag of $38,470.00 for a life-changing experience for 140 girls from Montauk, Sag Harbor, Springs, East Hampton, Southampton and Mastic Beach!
We need to raise just $85.00 per girl to ensure that each participant gets the training and transportation they need. That includes the cost of the certified instructors, transportation and fees, Thanks to the continued support of Hampton Jitney, we only need to raise $11,700 for this project despite the largest group of participants ever training for the Hamptons Youth Triathalon! How good is that!
Good people. Good business.
More girls from more locations in more towns means more transport and greater logistics. Hampton Jitney has very generously agreed to provide transportation to training at no charge to i-tri! They are donating 4 buses, a team of drivers driving 8 hours a day, over more than 2300 miles… all for the love of community. Thank you Hampton Jitney!

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.
