Like many others in the current climate of our country, I have reflected on my privilege and have been considering ways to make a positive difference. As a triathlete, I have seen first hand the very low percentage of people of color in my sport. So, for my July Giveback, I am thrilled to be able to support black triathletes with 10% of all July sales being donated to the International Association of Black Triathletes.
Why the International Association of Black Triathletes?
If you have followed my story, then you know that I was the recipient of the Women For Tri Kona Inspiring Woman spot at Ironman Championships in 2016. With that honor, I raised $27,000+ for Women for Tri to remove barriers for women to get into the sport of triathlon. I am also a member of Infinite Multisport Triathlon Club, a recipient of one of the W4T Tri Club scholarships allowing us to hold events and clinics to encourage more women into our sport. Consequently, I knew there had to be a similar organization for people of color (both men and women.)
During my research, I found the International Association of Black Triathletes. I was immediately impressed with their focus on recruiting and supporting young black triathletes. This woman-minority owned organization has been the first to:
- Launch a Minority Triathlon Recruitment Program, etc
- Host NCAA Women’s Varsity Triathlon COMBINES in urban communities
- Develop a Minority Triathlon Education & Development Academy
- Write a book in the industry for African Americans, written by an all African American Panel of experts including youth.
As a result, I am confident that the money donated through this giveback will be utilized to further the amazing mission of this organization.
To provide advancement for urban youth and communities they represent through the sport of triathlon by being a gateway to reduce academic and health disparities and to increase opportunities for collegiate studies, internships, and economic development.
I will be donating 10% of all orders placed at www.ThisGirlsGotGifts.com/shop in July to the International Association of Black Triathletes. Any orders you place through any party or my “No Party? Shop Here?” party will help to increase the donation. Thank you for allowing me to use my business to give this gift. ❤️
