In remembrance of Chase Kowalski, the students and educators of the Sandy Hook tragedy, Chase's parents started the CMAK Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation. The Kowalski family wanted to capture Chase’s competitive spirit and vitality in creating a charity in his honor with a focus on health and wellness for children and their families. CMAK (Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski) Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation has pursued programs and initiatives that encourage personal improvement, healthy lifestyles and strong family and communities.

The CMAK Foundation has created a triathlon program called Race4Chase.  The Race4Chase Kid’s Triathlon program is a youth triathlon program aimed to provide kids ages 6 to 12 with a safe, healthy non-competitive environment to discover the sport of triathlon.  It bring together kids from all different backgrounds and educates them on how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, coaches them to develop a foundation of athletic skills, and inspires them to aim high in sports and in life.

Designed as a free six-week goal oriented summer program, the program provides kids with expert instruction in swimming, cycling, running, strength training and flexibility, and teaches them the fundamentals of good nutrition, under the supportive guidance of coaches, lifeguards and instructors. Implementing a custom-designed training program, the coaches provide the youth athletes with all the equipment, knowledge, and one-on-one support they need to become tri-athletes.  At the culmination of


the training camp, all the youth athletes come together to compete in a USAT-sanctioned triathlon race.

The Southington Community YMCA is proud to be one of the sites to offer this program. Currently, the Southington Community YMCA has 8 spots still available for kids to join.  The program begins, Monday June 22, but they will be accepting kids until July 3. The program ends Saturday August 1.  The program will run from 8:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. daily, Monday- Friday.  On Saturday August 1, all participants will compete in a Youth Triathlon day at YMCA Camp Sloper.
