TRI for Free is a partnership between the NJ State Triathlon and Legacy of Hope.

Together, our goal is to raise $100,000 to not only fund the most promising cancer research, but provide emergency financial support for cancer patients and their families in the state.

Because we believe no family should lose their home or go without food because a loved one is fighting cancer and no promising cancer research should go unfunded.
