On Sunday, August 25, 2019 in Chicago and on the shores of Lake Michigan TEAM KEYSTONE FOUNDATION will swim, bike and run in the 37th annual Chicago Triathlon to raise funds for the Keystone Foundation. This will be our fourth year competing and the success we have had so far has inspired us to train even harder! With a total of over $60 000 raised so far, we are thankful for all of our supporters and donors, and all the athletes taking part in this initiative!

Mission - To provide Glenkirk and Search with direct financial aid in support of innovative programs and services and a source of permanent financial stability through:
