11th Annual Event Raises Money For Affordable Housing

This year, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh hosted the 11th Annual Kids Triathlon, held on July 16th in South Park and on August 6th in North Park. Both events were equally successful, as youth athletes ages 7-15 swim, bike, and run to raise awareness for affordable housing. Since its inception 11 years ago, the series has raised in excess of $725,000 for affordable housing and helps to instill the value of community service with the participants.

This year, 176 youth athletes crossed the finish line in South Park, and 335 youth athletes participated in the North Park event. For both North and South Park races, a combined total of $54,500 was raised through sponsorships and athlete registration fees. All race sponsorship dollars go directly to Habitat for Humanity, where the funds will help construct homes for people in need of decent, affordable housing.

Habitat for Humanity extends special thanks to members of the Pittsburgh Triathlon Club, Congressman Tim Murphy, the U.S. Army, Andrew Stockey, Citizen's Bank, the Kids Triathlon committee, and all of the volunteers that helped to make this event possible. And of course this special event could not be possible without the participation of the wonderful youth athletes, who continue to amaze and inspire year after year!        

Evgeny Kuznetsov corralled a pass from Alex Ovechkin at center ice, then breezed past Jamie Oleksiak and Kris Letang, finishing through the five hole of Matt Murray in overtime, to give the Washington Capitals a 2-1 win in Game 6, and the series clincher Monday night at PPG Paints Arena.
