“Theresa is lighting the way as we all navigate through this new normal,” i-tri said in a video promotion for the new service. “Let’s do this together.”
Theresa Roden, the nonprofit’s founder and chief visionary officer, along with athletic director Sharon McCobb, program manager Alyssa Channin, and program leaders Natalie Sisco and Jill Raynor, has altered the program, which empowers middle school girls through the completion of a triathlon, to help those enrolled stay active through online classes.
“Hundreds of girls from Mastic to Montauk are gaining added support — mind, body, and spirit — as we all go through this difficult time,” i-tri said in an email. “For 10 years, i-tri has empowered girls to become strong women. This year, we are empowering them to shine their light brighter than ever, giving themselves, their families, and their communities the strength to get through this together.”
Lessons will involve jumping jacks, wall sits, and bicep curls, among meditative and other educational endeavors.
More details will be released soon on how to get involved. See www.itrigirls.org.
