Bradley Lowery Foundation partners with World Triathlon Championship
The Triathlon Championship Series is coming to Sunderland and has partnered with the Foundation
The World Triathlon Championship Series Sunderland will host a range of activities across Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 July, offering experienced triathletes to anyone wanting to give the sport a go for the first time. This is their chance to be involved in the festival swim, bike or run.
To celebrate the launch of the partnership between the 2023 Championship series and the Bradley Lowery Foundation they have announced a special sale period before the general sale where £5 from every sprint or standard distance entry will be donated to the foundation. These entry tickets have been open since 8 October and will be on sale until 23 October.
The Bradley Lowery Foundation was established in memory of Bradley Lowery, who passed away following a fight with Neuroblastoma in 2017. Since then, the charity has raised more than £9 million for dozens of children, donated over £200,000 to researching childhood cancers, and campaigned for new drugs to be introduced in the UK.
Andy Salmon, British Triathlon CEO said: “World Triathlon Championship Series Sunderland is a global event, and we’re really excited to be able to partner with the Bradley Lowery Foundation to further the local impact it brings.
“The foundation does great work and we’re proud of that, through the entry period and other opportunities during the build-up and event weekend, we’ll be able to support them by raising important funds”.
Councillor Linda Williams, Sunderland City Council’s Cabinet Member for Vibrant City, said: “We’re really excited to be hosting the 2023 World Triathlon Championship series in our city next summer and I’m thrilled to see the Bradley Lowery Foundation being named charity partner for the event”.
