Woof. Hosted by the Central Bucks YMCA, the Dog Days Of Summer Kids Triathlon will allow children from ages 3 to 14 to join in a friendly, three discipline competition. The goal of the event will be to allow all children to discover the unique and confidence-building experience of setting an achieving a goal – even one they think is beyond their reach.
Proceeds from this fundraising event will go to support the many services the Y provides to its community. This includes financial assistance programs and new initiatives such as THRIVE- which offers support to cancer patients and their families.
As a proud sponsor of the Central Bucks Family YMCA, Horizon Services could not be more enthusiastic about this event. We consistently encourage our own technicians to better themselves and to set and surpass new goals related to technical training and personal growth. For this reason we believe the triathlon and the focus of the event can be extremely beneficial to all of the children participating.
