Since 2005, the North Dakota Chapter of LifeNets has sponsored what has grown to be the second-largest triathlon in the state, the LifeNets Triathlon. Each year, the proceeds go towards supporting LifeNets projects; last year, the proceeds from this triathlon helped fund the digging of a well in Malawi.
This year’s triathlon, held on August 22nd, featured 62 participants from as far away as Hawaii, many of whom have returned each year to the triathlon. While the event raised money for LifeNets, it also allowed the North Dakota Chapter to begin with local giving: the unused concession items were donated to the Ruth Myers Hospitality House in Bismarck, North Dakota.
