Just Shine Summer Retrospective: Healthy Kids Triathlon

It may have been the dog days of summer, but the young athletes who took part in this year’s health kids triathlon were ready to run, bike, and swim their way to victory.  

 

On Saturday, August 20, 2022, Shine Orthodontics partnered with the Countryside YMCA in Lebanon to host the annual Healthy Kids Triathlon. The goal of the triathlon was to help kids stay healthy and active in a fun yet competitive environment.

Shine Orthodontics originally planned to auction off just one Comprehensive Orthodontics Treatment, but in the end, we couldn’t help ourselves and auctioned off a total of three sets! The best part: all proceeds went towards funding the Caring for Families Campaign.  

 

Let’s take a look at some of the activities that were held, some of the top sponsors of the event, the big winners, and what participants can look forward to next year! 

 

Healthy Kids Triathlon Activities 

 

A triathlon is a three-part race that consists of a swim, bike, and run.

This year, the Healthy Kids Triathlon was split into three categories. The 8 and under group, the 9 to 11 group, and the 12 and up the group. Each group was staggered to give the kids an age-appropriate challenge. 

 

The athletes swam in an Olympic-sized swimming pool, biked on the Countryside/Lebanon bike trail, and ran cross country on the YMCA’s outdoor fields and nature trail.  

 

After the race, Skyline Chili provided participants and their families with a delicious post-race lunch that also included bagels, bananas, oranges, and apples!

In total, over 50 volunteers helped set up food, games, and a large bounce house for family-fun activities.  

 

Top finishers received a USA TYR Backpack!  Each participant received a YMCA Sports medal for their completion of the triathlon.  

 

A huge thank you to everyone who made this year’s Healthy Kids Triathlon one we will never forget!
