The Women's Giving Circle is a fund at the Columbia Foundation, Howard County's Community Foundation
The WGC's Circle Team - Iron Girl Triathlon
Swimming, Biking, Running ... Inspiring, Giving!
The WGC's Circle Team was created to support the Women's Giving Circle's (WGC) efforts to fund programs that benefit women and girls and to inspire others to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. Since its inception in 2006, the WGC's Circle Team has raised over $80,000. The WGC's Circle Team competes in various community races, with the Iron Girl Triathlon being its flagship event.
Training season is in full swing and we wanted to touch base with you regarding the 2013 Women's Giving Circle's Circle Team. If you have been involved with the team in the past you know that we are a team of female athletes of varying fitness levels all of whom compete in local triathlons and/or running races. We are committed to supporting women and girls in Howard County and use our racing as a means to raise money for the Women's Giving Circle of Howard County. The WGC's Circle Team has had over 75 athletes and raised over $80,000 since its inception and has made an incredible impact on the organization and how we are supporting local women and girls.
This year we are refocusing the Circle Team to be a member-driven team. All team events, fundraising and training activities will be organized by Circle Team members. This means there will be NO dues or registration requirements. While we will not be setting a required fundraising amount, we do ask that you participate with the team only if you are committed to setting up a fundraising page and raising funds for the WGC. (We will assist you in this process).
We will draw from the talents of our veteran Circle Team members to lead swims, bike rides and runs, to host various exercise classes and to organize nutrition training plans. We hope you will bring your unique talents to the table too! Whereas last year T-shirts and tri suits were included in team dues, this year they will simply be available at cost.
If you are interested in joining our efforts, training with an inspiring group of women and having a great time all around, please join our Facebook page as Facebook will be our primary method of communication. We invite you to post anytime you are training so your fellow team members can join you. We will organize happy hours and other special events and will post them there too.
