Most of you know how passionate I am about the mission and vision of i-tri. I believe that the work being done by i-tri to empower and support adolescent girls- offered free of charge to all girls regardless of economic, racial or immigration status is VITAL to our communities and our futures.
This year, we realized just how important our Empowerment and Fitness programming was to our girls and their families--not only as training for a triathlon but in coping with the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the stress that accompanied it. Speaking on a personal note, if my daughter, Skyler, had this kind of program available to her in middle school, it would have supported her as she coped with mental health challenges.
I am committed to raising $2,500.00 towards the total $200,000 goal for this year-- a goal that will help us bring our programming beyond the Eastern End of Long Island, virtually in 2021 and in-person in years to come.
