We raise money for various children’s charities through the triathlon event. Participants pay a registration fee and raise money on top of this for their chosen charity or all the charities involved in the particular year. It is a voluntary organisation so all money raised by the participants goes directly to their chosen charity and to the specific projects the charities they want to raise money for.
