The 2016 Reston Sprint Triathlon was the first triathlon that I participated in. I’m so glad that it was my first race, because it was such a friendly one. All the volunteers were very supportive, and the staff offered a lot of pre-race information and encouragement as well. I recommend the Reston Sprint for all first-timers!
The Reston Sprint launched me on a personal path to self-empowerment (I’ve since participated in longer length triathlons) and so, it’s time for me to share that experience. The CORE Foundation provides help to other organizations who want to help people, has sponsored the Reston Sprint since it began, in 2007. I am raising money for Cornerstones, one of the orgs that the CORE Foundation helps.
“Cornerstones is a nonprofit organization that promotes self-sufficiency by providing support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare, and other human services.”
In my life, I have been fortunate to have the economic resources necessary to reach out and participate in empowering experiences. So, I am asking my friends to support me by supporting The Sprint and Cornerstones. If you are fortunate, as I am, to have the resources necessary to take care of yourself and your loved ones, will you help me raise funds for those who are not as fortunate as we? Thank you! Look for an update on Reston Sprint 2018 after race day, June 3rd.
