ABOUT THE WEET-BIX TRYATHLON FOUNDATION

Nothing beats the feeling of running across the finish line, arms raised, wearing your Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon t-shirt to receive your Champions gold medal from one of NZ’s leading sports stars.

Unfortunately, not every child is fortunate enough to have this opportunity. But together we can help change that.

Established in 2008, the Weet-Bix TRYathlon Foundation was set up to give less fortunate Kiwi kids the chance to participate in the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon –  by providing subsidised entries or necessary equipment such as bikes and helmets, because we are passionate about the health and wellbeing of all Kiwi kids.

Our research has shown that while the TRYathlon has a positive impact on the majority of children who participate, it has a significantly greater positive impact on children who are from disadvantaged backgrounds.*

Over the last 12 years, the Foundation has provided assistance to hundreds of Kiwi kids.

100% of funds raised will go towards entry fees and providing the essential equipment needed to take part in the Weet-Bix™ Kids TRYathlon™.

Together we can make a positive difference in Kiwi kids’ lives.

Thank you for your support!
