The Boomer Esiason Foundation is proud to be among the official charity partners for the 2012 Aquaphor New York City Triathlon.
The Foundation will provide guaranteed triathlon entries to six individuals and three relay teams who pledge to raise funds for the Foundation. The athletes who participate on behalf of BEF will receive fundraising guidance as well as extensive pre-race and race day support.
The Aquaphor New York City Triathlon is an Olympic Distance race consisting of a 1500m swim, a 40k bike, and a 10k run. Each year, more than 3,000 athletes brave the waters of the mighty Hudson River before biking along Manhattan's West Side highway. Finally, athletes put on their running shoes for a run through New York's famed Central Park.
