The "Give Peace a Tri" mission remains the same now as it has over the past 8 years. 90% Mental Multisport has taken over organization of the race. Yet the goal and commitment to peace action and activism has not changed. We strive to create a welcoming race for beginners and a fun, challenging race for seasoned triathletes.
When I thought of the idea of "Give Peace a Tri", I wanted to make the connection between setting goals like doing a triathlon and how much our actions make a difference. Just as the idea of attaining world peace is so huge the idea of completing a triathlon can seem huge. In 2005 when this idea came to me triathlon was not a household word, obstacle races that are so popular now had not even been heard of. I hoped to give people an attainable goal they could succeed in. By completing this goal it would give them a sense of empowerment. A chance to ask them selves the question "What else can I do to cultivate a culture of peace in my life, in my community? What efforts can I make to lessen my impact on our natural world.?" In the words of Margaret Mead "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizen can change the world: Indeed, it is the only thing that ever does." We truly are the thoughtful committed citizens who do make a difference. We hope everyone who participates in our triathlon experiences a day of fun, good karma, and satisfaction.
I am still a part of the Mothersuniting Advisory Committee that will decide how to best use the proceeds of "Give Peace a Tri" to promote peace education in our community and where ever we feel our help is needed. The commitment to creating a non violent and just world for all children remains the same.
