ProEx was excited to be the title sponsor for Woburn's first youth triathlon, Just TRI-It, held last Sunday, April 10th in Woburn. The triathlon was orchestrated by Be Well WOBURN, a citywide initiative which creates opportunities that encourage healthy habits in children through educational programs and events. This particular event was geared toward children ages 5 to 12 with little or no experience in triathlons. The swim portion of the race took place at the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn while the bike and run took place between Spence Farm and the Boys and Girls Club. ProEx staff kicked things off with pre race stretching to get the participants warmed up.
After the race, ProEx clinicians were on hand at Spence Farm to answer questions community members had on strength, flexibility and specific orthopedic conditions. A continuous line was formed at the ProEx tent with children waiting to receive their very own balloon creation along with other free giveaways. Earth Day activities, hosted by the Malcolm White Elementary School, also took place at Spence Farm after the race with games, food, hayrides, and a pony plop raffle. The day was a huge success and a FUN time was had by all!
