Tri for Malawi Provides 150 Scholarships!

Pausing for a Photo Pre-Race!

On September 7th, 2013, 38 athletes, humanitarians, and friends honored our girls who walk a triathlon-sized distance every week just to attend school by participating in the Nations Triathlon on behalf of AGE Africa. Together, the Tri for Malawi Team has raised over $112,000 – An incredible $12,000 over our original goal! For the first time in Tri for Malawi history we have reached – and surpassed – goal by Race Day. Also new this year, were the Ambassador from the Republic of Malawi to the United States, His Excellency Steven Matenje, and the Deputy Chief of Mission, Jane Nankwenya, who joined the festivities and swam, biked, and ran with their Embassy Team. A huge thank you to all of our extraordinary athletes, donors, and our first-ever corporate partner, Team Ashmore, for helping to realize our goal and providing 150 scholarships to needy girls this fall! For more information or to join the Tri for Malawi Team Challenge 2014, please email triathlon@ageafrica.org.
