Youth marathon a wonderful celebration of community, fitness

To the Editor,

Something wonderful started in Robeson County on Saturday when the Robeson County Tri Warriors sponsored the first youth (ages 6-15) triathlon in the county at UNC Pembroke. Ninety-nine children registered for the inaugural event, which was simply a wonderful celebration of community and fitness.
I noticed that most of the Tri Warriors had no children in the event, so this was truly a labor of love for them. I can imagine this event growing in size each year because of the quality and commitment of the volunteers and their efforts. This will definitely be another “must attend” event for our community.
