The Story

EVENT DATE: Jul 22, 2017

Help raise money to support cancer patients in Sonoma County as a part of Barb's Tri. This women's-only triathlon will (re)launch in July of 2017, but we're starting to raise money NOW. Cancer never sleeps and neither do we. 


Barb's Tri is named after our Ambassador-in-Chief, Barb Recchia, a two-time cancer survivor who has volunteered thousands of hours in triathlons and other athletic events. In the process, she has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help people with a cancer diagnosis.


Your donations go to Learning is Open (LiO) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that improves the world through ‘meaningful engagement,’ activities that challenge people personally and improve the world around them. LiO will distribute donations to Sutter's Institute for Health & Healing and other organizations that support cancer patients in Sonoma County, CA.
