ABOUT THE WEET-BIX TRYATHLON FOUNDATION

The Weet-Bix TRYathlon Foundation was established in 2007 by Sanitarium staff. Its purpose is to remove the barriers to entry, so that the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon is open to all kids regardless of their circumstances, and accessible to as many families as possible.

We achieve this goal through subsidising entries, or the donation of equipment such as a bikes and helmets.

WE WANT TO GIVE EVERY KIWI KIDS THE CHANCE TO TRY ON A WEET-BIX KIDS TRYATHLON T-SHIRT

The Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon strives to create a life-changing experience for kids in a fun, safe and dynamic environment. We see the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon t-shirt as a symbol of resilience, camaraderie and self-confidence and we want to provide the opportunity to all kids to be able to try it on.

Your nomination or donation will make a positive difference in Kiwi kids’ lives and help them TRY IT ON.

100% of all donations go to helping more Kiwi kids take part in the Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon.
