Dare2Tri Paratriathlon Club Camp Volunteer Request

Dare2Tri Paratriathlon Club has been a Chicago based organization helping paratriathletes of various ages and abilities get to the start line and through the finish line of triathlons since 2011. Military veterans with physical disabilities and individuals with various degrees of visual impairments or blindness have benefited from the work Dare2Tri does in Chicago. Over time, members of the club have included those in other parts of the country. In fact, this year, many of those who have been selected to the Elite Team live outside of Illinois. Each year, Dare2Tri organizes a weekend training camp for newcomers and experienced advanced athletes alike. Dare2Tri is hosting said camp this weekend in Pleasant Prairie, Wi. At the end of the camp, a Tri It Triathlon takes place for campers to show off what they learned throughout the camp. Again, people with different levels of experience in the swim, bike, run disciplines take part in the camp and race. Dare2Tri is still in need of volunteers for the camp and Sunday closing race. If you wish to volunteer, please log on to the following link and register or pass it along to others who may have interest in joining the good folks at Dare2Tri for a weekend of rewarding inspiring fun!
