Running Just for the Kindness of It
The Shyann Kindness Project's fourth annual “Tri” For Acts of Kindness Sprint Triathlon/Duathlon and 5K Run Walk will be held at 6:30 a.m., September 14, at La Mariposa, in Tucson. This race allows individuals and or families to participate in an activity that provides an incentive to exercise, eat healthy and get or remain fit and also support a locally based children’s charity. For those that have been interested in participating in a triathlon or duathlon but have not done so, this sprint version is a great first-time event because of the shorter distances.
This race is the signature fundraiser for the nonprofit Shyann Kindness Project (ShyannKindness.org) whose mission is to serve and put smiles on the faces of underprivileged, at-risk and medically fragile children by providing fun and needed gifts, while promoting and teaching kindness and acceptance of all people.
