More than 800 athletes decided to KIC IT in Stamford Sunday. For a 7th year, athletes took a swim, bike ride, and run through the city for the annual KIC IT Triathlon, a fundraising event for Kids in Crisis.
“I just think it’s a great race; it’s local here in Stamford, it benefits a great cause, it’s good fun here with lots of friends, have a great time,” says Jeffrey Palma, a Kids in Crisis Board Member and triathlon participant.
Kids in Crisis is Connecticut’s only free, round the clock emergency shelter and counseling center for children and their families. And whether they took on the 32-mile Olympic race or the 17-mile sprint race, Sunday’s participants gave it their all to support the cause.
“I’m also obviously interested in the fun of it and the fitness but this charity is a really special one, Kids is Crisis in this area makes a huge impact on kids’ lives,” says participant Jerry Mcguire.
