School Triathlon Challenge
The Pennicott Foundation has been the major sponsor of the Schools Triathlon Challenge program since 2013. It’s an innovative approach towards educating children (and also their parents) about the importance of good nutrition and a healthy, active lifestyle.
The event’s philosophy is to help promote active and healthy lifestyle choices for students, provide a pathway for students to become engaged in physical activity and allow students to undertake an achievable personal challenge.
The event also has a strategic partnership with Diabetes Tasmania which delivers nutrition information and resources for schools and families to help address childhood health related issues, obesity and Type II Diabetes.
Schools are reporting that the Schools Triathlon Challenge is significantly improving student physical activity levels, building positive healthy habits early in life. This can only assist to improve the health of our next generation.
