Application Process to Begin Shortly!!!
The Race4Chase Kids Triathlon Program will be attracting close to 500 young athletes to participate in the six week training program at the fourteen sites within Connecticut and one site in Fort Mill SC. Each of these sites will be conducting their own application and selection process within March and April to choose the athletes that would benefit most from this program which is free to all participants.
Given the success of the programs in 2015, we expect to have enthusiastic participation at most of our locations, so that it would be best for those who have interest to inquire now at their preferred site as to the details of the application process. Please see the list below for the locations that will be hosting a program this year.
We hope to see everyone at the FINALE event at YMCA Camp Sloper on August 6th.

Birthday 2 Birthday Challenge 2016
The 2nd Annual Birthday 2 Birthday Challenge is adding new participants each week, especially as the weather has turned better in the Northeast. Although this challenge focuses on bicycling, participants can meet the challenge through running, swimming, walking or all the above if they log the equivalent number of hours in training of riding 1100 miles up until Chase's 11th birthday, October 31st, 2016.
One of our new Race4Chase Kids Triathlon Program sites, Riverbrook Regional YMCA, is energetically accepting the Birthday 2 Birthday Challenge by offering its members to sign up and use the opportunity to raise money for the local program. The B2B Challenge will have a kickoff event at Riverbrooks Wilton YMCA on April 6th where members will be introduced to CMAK and the Race4Chase Kids Tri Program and joined by Rebecca Kowalski for a few miles of biking.
Birthday 2 birthday challenge participant Kathy and Scott Mason have a great reason to be smiling and showing thumbs up, they got their new bike's through Zane cycles and their special discounted packages for Race4Chase B2B cyclists! Call Tom Girard (203)-488-3244
tell Tom Race4Chase sent you and get a great deal on bike's like Masons' or ours I've been putting on the miles this winter but have a ways to go. I love riding the rail trail with my new trail bike along with Steve and his new bike. We look forward to getting to 1100 miles to celebrate Chase's 11th birthday. So if you need a bike Zanes was a great experience for us, so give Tom a call.

Family fun is what we are all about!
Spending quality time together and sneaking in exercise makes it even more fun. That's exactly how it was February 18th when a bunch of Race4Chase families got together to get our jump on. It was also exciting to see so many trumbull program kids getting together to reconnect and get hugs from their amazing coach Heidi. Rock and jump has added a rock wall and a jousting bar. My own daughter took me out with two swift hits. I think we need a rematch!
