Who Are We?
Team Sponge was created by Jane Hansom (Ironman AG World Champion) who's vision is to use the sport of triathlon to do good. We support charity initiatives focused in para-triathlon, youth sport and teaching kids to swim. The team itself is made up of 8 remarkable amateur triathletes, including Jane and 1 pro who all share the unique aim to #TRIFORGOOD.
Who Are We Supporting?
Our 1st Charity is Arctic One, who enable para athletes to learn the basics of triathlon. They provides funding to purchase prosthetic limbs that allow recipients the freedom to run.
Our 2nd charity is Triathlon Trust, the official charity of British Triathlon. They use the sport of triathlon to encourage children to lead more active and healthier lifestyles. Since 2012, Triathlon Trust have delivered over 80,000 Active Days, providing fun, free and inclusive opportunities for children of all abilities to get involved in the sport.
Our 3rd reason to #TRIFORGOOD is our very own international community project to build a pool on the island of Nevis. On this tiny island in the middle of the Caribbean, swimming should be one of the first basics taught to young children, especially as a life-saving skill. However locals are scared to swim in the sea and there are no public swimming pools. We want to raise funds to contribute to the opening of the first public swimming pool on Nevis island, giving children, as well as adults, the opportunity to learn how to swim in a safe environment.
How Are We Supporting Them?
We are aiming to fundraise for these initiatives through brand sponsorship, waived race entry fees re-circulated as charity revenue, personal pledges from individual team members and of course, race winnings - here's hoping!
Please pledge as much as you can to help us support these great initiatives and use the sport of triathlon to do some good in the world!
