New Jersey State Triathlon
TCA Volunteer Event
July 20, 2019
Our TCA team volunteered at the New Jersey State triathlon, which has been voted one of the top 5 tri’s in the nation and best triathlon of 2016 by Competitor magazine. It has sold out to 3,500 triathletes every year since inception.
TCA youth team volunteered in this event second year in a row. On July 20th, 2019, twenty five members of our team volunteered in this event. This year, we were assigned the task of cheering the athletes in the finishing chute cheering and encouraging the athletes to the finish line and the second task to open the gates to the swimmers in the start line. Our team was there both in the start and the finish line. Our TCA family had the wonderful opportunity to welcome the winner in finish line the among the 3500 participants.
It was one of the weekends with heat wave announced and temperatures soaring high up to 100 degrees. TCA members kept their cheerful faces and encouraged the athletes to the finish line. As it was very hot, the athletes were not able to reach the finish line, but our team kept encouraging them to move “a little more… to the finish line” and that encouraged the athletes to finish the race. Some of the athletes were 70+ years. We had the opportunity to witness the determination and the passion that these athletes show and it was thought provoking to our young TCA team as well to show dedication and passion towards what you do.
