BreakAway Kids Tri

Lake Rebecca Park Reserve - Rockford


The BreakAway Kids Tri is an adventure-based triathlon just for kids. It's coming to two of Minnesota's finest parks on Saturday, August 15 at Lake Rebecca Park Reserve and Saturday, August 22 at Lake Elmo Park Reserve. It won't be any ordinary swim, bike and run race though.

Kids: Along the way, you'll encounter some surprises to challenger your creativity and toughness in fun and dynamic ways. This adventure is being built just for you by the same team who previously created and led the world's largest fundraising triathlon for kids.

The 2015 BreakAway Kids Tri Campaign is dedicated to two important charity partner projects, chosen by our Kid Advisory Panel (KAP).

  1. Save the Camp
    When our KAP team learned that Minnesota's beloved camp for children with cancer had suddenly lost its funding and was being canceled, they voted unanimously to save it. Now you can join them by racing in the 2015 BreakAway Kids Tri and by fundraising to save the camp for over 100 kids with cancer and their siblings.
  2. Finish the Pain Clinic's Needs
    The $62,800 kids raised for the first-of-its-kind Pediatric Pain, Palliative and Integrative Medicine Clinic at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesotawas used to pay for extraordinary items inside the clinic. Our website has more about the impact our kids made in 2014. There is a need to add finishing items to help the clinic serve as many kids in chronic or life-limiting pain as possible.
