We are firm believers in focusing on what we do best while joining forces with others who are experts in what they do. Of course, every partnership must also be mutually beneficial. Within this context, we are proud that many of our most important partnerships started in 2009 and continue to prosper today.
While we work with many, many groups in every market – from schools to swim teams to triathlon clubs to churches – there are a couple of organizations that have been with us since the start. If you are interested in joining our winning team, please give our Event Director, Tom Gildersleeve, a call at 904.610.9921. At the very least, please join us in supporting, recognizing and thanking all of our Partners, starting with:
The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That's because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
The Y is community centered. For more than 125 years, we've been listening and responding to our communities.
The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.
The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
The Y has local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.
In October 2007, the NFL launched the NFL PLAY 60 initiative. This program is a national health and fitness campaign focused on improving the health and wellness of our youth by encouraging them to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.
In this spirit, NFL Charities is proud recognize Kids Triathlon as an approved Partner of the NFL PLAY 60 Campaign. Each NFL team is encouraged to support their locale kids triathlon. We recognize this event helps teach kids swimming and bike safety, and it encourages thousands of families to be active together.
Player, coaches, mascots and cheerleaders appear throughout each community to help kids get ready and excited to race.
Due to the costs involved in organizing our events, we rely heavily on a team of outstanding Sponsors. Some are involved at a national level across all of our events. Others are focused on one or two of our kids triathlons. In every case, we provide an unmatched platform on which you and your company can directly engage with thousands of kids and their families.
In addition, our education and outreach programs make it possible for your message to connect with these affluent, active families year-around. We recognize you are approached almost every day with sponsorship requests, and we want to be different. We are willing to customize our programs to support your objectives, and we provide multiple points of contact – including the opportunity for employee groups to become a part of your support through volunteering.
We are very proud that more than 95% of our Sponsors renew their support every year, and we would love to have you join our winning team. If you are interested in learning more about how you can do good for your community while doing well for your business, please give Shelda a call today.
