Kids Who Tri Succeed is a USAT-sanctioned triathlon for children ages 4-14. Now in its eighth year, this event shows kids how much fun working towards a fitness goal is, and increases their confidence as a result.
“Trout Parks are easily accessible, have picnic areas and other amenities nearby, and are stocked frequently so that there are plenty of trout for children, families and novice anglers to catch,” said Chief of DEEP’s Bureau of Natural Resources Bill Hyatt. “And as an added feature, families will be able to help stock trout at eight of the Trout Parks on Opening Day.”
The program will be run through the Red Sox Foundation and help fund a soon-to-be-formed scholarship program for Connecticut public high school students who demonstrate academic talent, financial need and a commitment to community service.
