“WATTS UP” INDOOR TRIATHLON EVENT

To help triathletes get in shape for the upcoming season, we have designed a FUN event that will test your fitness level and also have you compete against others.

Compete in the traditional three events of a triathlon for 20 minutes on each event and then tally your total distance in yards to determine the winner.  THE TWIST: To add to the challenge, we will calculate watts into the bike ride to measure the work effort as well as the distance.  We believe this will add some balance to the bike ride (rather than having participants SPIN at different exertion levels).

Event Dates:

Sunday, 2/24

Sunday, 3/31

Sunday, 4/28

Member; $15
Non-Member: $25
Fee includes a t-shirt

Cox Awards Nearly $133,000 to Local Organizations

Cranston YMCA, Breakthrough Providence and South Kingstown CARES among 2013 Cox Charities Community Grant Recipients.
 
Photo CaptionCox Communications recently presented close to $133,000 in Cox Charities grants during a breakfast at their Northeast headquarters in West Warwick. Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts served as the honorary chairperson and keynote speaker at the event.  
 
The organizations were selected to receive grants by a group of elected officials, community partners and business leaders for providing quality after-school programming that benefits the education and development of youth. Cox Charities, a charitable giving initiative of Cox Communications, has invested more than $5.6 million in grants and in-kind support to more than 130 organizations throughout Rhode Island and Connecticut since 2001.
 
“Giving back to the community is more than just a commitment. It’s a way of life for our employees and our business,” said John Wolfe, senior vice president and general manager, Cox Northeast. “We applaud these organizations for their commitment to helping our youth succeed. Cox is proud to provide these grants and additional visibility to support the great work being done in our community.”
 
“The grant from Cox has helped us develop a great summer learning program.  This year we are very excited to add a Leadership Program that would not be possible without the financial support from Cox Charities,” said Michael Norklun, executive director for the Cranston YMCA, one of the grant recipients.
