DSA of DE/DCC Triathlon Team and Training

The DSA of Delaware will be participating in the Delaware Charity Challenge Indoor Triathlon. We will have teams that consist of a teen/adult (age 13 and up) with Down syndrome and their triathlon partners. The training partners can be parents, siblings, friends, or DSA of DE will match them with triathlon partner volunteers. The Triathlon will be held indoors at the Chase Center in Wilmington. The triathlon will consist of 15 minutes each of a row machine, treadmill and stationary bike. This event will incorporate fitness fun and fundraising for DSA of DE. Each team will fundraise individually and will compete for prizes through the Delaware Charity Challenge. DSA of DE's goal for this program is to raise funds to create an ongoing 12-week fitness, nutrition and healthy living program for teens and adults with Down syndrome.

Our teams will train weekly leading up to the Triathlon. We will meet on Sundays (beginning on Oct. 30th) at 5pm at the Western YMCA to workout together with our triathlon partners.
