The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 13, 2015

Each year, fifty athletes, join the Ambassador from the Republic of Malawi to the United States to compete in the Events DC Nation’s Triathlon, and honor AGE Africa’s scholars who walk a triathlon-sized distance every week just to attend school.  The Tri for Malawi Team Challenge is AGE Africa’s largest fundraising event, and this year team members will compete to raise a total of $150,000 to support 190 scholarships for AGE Africa’s students. 

 

Why join the Tri for Malawi Team Challenge?

  • 50% all girls in Malawi are married by the age of 18.
  • 11% of the population 15+ years old are HIV positive, the majority of whom are girls.
