Looking to compete in a scenic triathlon this year? Check out the inaugural Celebrating Heroes Triathlon, which will be held June 24 in Howard County, Md.
Proceeds from the event will help support MedStar National Rehabilitation Network's sports programs and free clinics in the Washington, D.C., area that engage both children and adults in adaptive sports such as basketball, tennis and rugby.
MedStar NRH provides these opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so that they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics.
TriColumbia is sponsoring the event.
