Andy Lewis - It’s Fun 2 Tri provides a much loved and valued service for the community.
Each year for the last 3 years I have hosted its Fun2Tri to get local children active. It works by hosting 4 different sessions over 5 months.
1. Swim Skills - Helping children to have fun in the water, development of a life saving skill. After this I tell them about Lydney swimming Club to signpost them to a club.
2. Bike Skills - During this session not only do I talk about bike skills but also help children to maintain there bikes and learn about the safety on the road as well as having fun.
3. Run Skills - With fitness and fun in mind children pace themselves against the bleep test. A test that each Tiné they do it they try to improve the level they reach.
4. Test Event - Mini Triathlon - Once the children have mastered these three skills they take part in a test event where they get to peace all three together.
5. THE MAIN EVENT - this is where each child that completes the course compete in a triathlon and get a medal. The parents get involved, local community can support and everyone finishes with a smile on their faces.
HOWEVER We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
I can no longer offer this program to the children without the support of others. Each year I end up funding some of this myself. I would like to buy some equipment so I don't have to keep begging for kit. I also would like to purchase a few spare secondhand bikes, few spare helmets etc as not everyone has a bike, this is thorough either not being able to afford one of maybe theirs is broken.
I want to help everyone get active, no matter of gender, religion, sex or age it's about keeping healthy.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
