WELCOME TO THE 2017 GRAND RAPIDS TRIATHLON - DREAM TEAM!

DREAM TEAM is a dedicated group of individuals coming together to form a TEAM! The DREAM TEAM will participate in endurance events such as triathlons, marathons, 5ks, 10k, etc. and raise funds for Make-A-Wish of Michigan, helping grant wishes to local kids that are fighting life threatening diseases.

These kids deserve to have a wish granted...but there are costs associated with granting wishes. By committing to participate in a race and attempt to hit a fundraising goal, we can help grant these wishes!

Our inaugural event is the Grand Rapids Triathlon and want you to join the team!  Please select “Join this fundraiser” to register and join the DREAM TEAM!  Our suggested fundraising goals are:

  • $750 for Sprint Distance 
  • $1,000 for Olympic Distance
  • $1,500 for ½ Iron Distance

Of course, you are welcome to raise more!

For questions about training opportunities, please contact Dan at danvan56@gmail.com
