Giving back to the sport and the community…it’s an important part of who we are at TriLaVie…and plus, it just makes us feel great! When you volunteer with TriLaVie at a race, you not only get to give back to the sport by encouraging and supporting your fellow triathlon team and athletes, you also have an opportunity to give back to the community through our Charity Beneficiaries Program. Each of the volunteer race opportunities in 2012 will earn a donation to our selected charity, Exceeding Expectations Foundation. If you have ever participated in a race, you know that volunteers make a huge difference in how smoothly a race runs. Seeing what goes on “behind the scenes” is an eye-opener and something that each of us should experience at least once.
Everyone!!! You didn’t think that we were going to limit all of this fun to just TriLaVie Team Members did you? Volunteering is a great fit for team members and team friends and family (team supporters). All are welcome... the only requirement is a positive attitude and energy.
While the volunteer activities may differ from race to race, here is a list of the types of activities that we may be asked to help with at a race are checking in athletes, body marking, directing racers in and out of the transition area, handing out water at aid stations on the bike and run courses, helping to remove timing chips at the finish line and cheering on all of the amazing athletes. What are you waiting for? Sign up for our volunteer opportunities today! Contact TriLaVie Volunteer Coordinator Darcy
TriLaVie is a triathlon training team for women of all abilities in Southern California. We build community amongst ourselves and give back to the community through our Charity Beneficiaries Program. TriLaVie members raised more than $25,000.00 since 2009 through our volunteer efforts, partnerships with local race directors and direct donations. We are proud to announce that our choice for 2012 continues to be the Exceeding Expectations Foundation! Their work is important and life-changing. Exceeding Expectations is designed to encourage at-risk kids to move their lives in a positive direction using the sport of triathlon as the vehicle. It is founded by Ironman triathlete Cherie Grunefeld. The goal of EE is to offer youth opportunities to participate in a lifestyle that is healthy, goal-oriented and very unlike that which they experience in their everyday lives. We strive to replace negative influences with positive role models and to instill in the kids a powerful new discipline of setting measurable goals and working hard to achieve them.
