Swim. Bike. Run. for kids with cancer 

The 3rd Annual Pinky Swear Kids Triathlon is a non-timed and non-competitive race for kids ages 6-18 of all abilities. Join us as an athlete, volunteer, corporate sponsor or spectator to help support the Pinky Swear mission to help kids with cancer and their families meet basic needs such as housing, food, and transportation, and provide experiences that create emotional support.

All participants receive:

  • Fundraising kit with All-Star trading cards
  • Race t-shirt and bib - Register by May 15 for personalized race bib
  • Race bag
  • Swim cap
  • Water bottle
  • Finishers medal

Kids with cancer demonstrate courage, patience and resilience every day. We call them All-Stars!

Fundraising for kids with cancer

Pinky Swear Kids Triathlon participants will race in the spirit of an All-Star child who is battling cancer - like Kingston. Every racer has the opportunity to help raise funds to support families and help Pinky Swear Foundation pay mortgages, rent, provide groceries, make car payments, and help make daily life for these families a little easier.

Your Pinky Swear All-Star

After registering online, participants will receive a fundraising kit with All-Star Trading Cards in the mail. The All-Star on the trading card included in your fundraising kit will become the inspiration for your race. One of the most meaningful parts of your day and your pariticpation in the triathlon is the moment we write the name of the All-Star on the back of your leg before the race at body marking.

Incentives to fundraise

When you meet fundraising milestones, you can receive fun incentives! Check back soon for more information.
