For athletes getting ready for a triathlon, you'd imagine their focus would be timing.    Though that's part of what pushes triathletes to compete in the Kids in Crisis Stamford race, it's about supporting the organization's cause.  

Erica Schietinger is a dedicated runner, but this will be her first time taking on a triathlon in almost 14 years.

But she's up for the challenge and is one of hundreds benefiting Kids in Crisis by doing so.  The agency is the only free, round the clock crisis counseling center and temporary shelter in New England helping newborns through 17 year olds in crisis.

And this year, 60 athletes from Chelsea Piers CT's Full Throttle team are taking on the olympic course.  Schietinger says it's been a plus training with them.

Now she's ready to swim, bike, and run.

During her training, Scheitinger raised over $900 for the organization by setting up an online donation page.  If you'd like to donate or find out more information about the event, visit
