ProEx was excited to sponsor Woburn's 2nd annual youth triathlon, Just TRI-it!, which took place on Sunday, May 20th. The triathlon was orchestrated by Be Well Woburn, a city-wide 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 a group warmup to get the participants ready for the race.
Afterward, 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. A Spring Festival, hosted by the Malcolm White Elementary School, also took place at Spence Farm after the race with a bounce house, games, raffles, and refreshments. The day was a huge success and a FUN time was had by all!
