A very special thanks to the Luray and Page County communities
Each year in appreciation for the support of the local Luray and Page County communities in hosting the event, the triathlon donates a portion of the race proceeds to benefit the local Luray and Page Valley communities.
The United Way of Page County is the primary beneficiary of the Luray Triathlon. 100% of the funds raised by the local chapter go directly back into the community to benefit the chapter’s 10 non-profit community organizations that need it the most. In addition, the United Way provides most of our volunteers on race weekend.
The 2013 Triathlon raised or donated more than $26,000 for local community organizations including nearly $15,000 for the United Way of Page County. Other groups we donated money to include: Luray Rescue, Shenandoah Volunteer Fire Company, Stanley Rescue, Luray Little League, Luray High School, Page County High School and Luray Parks & Recreation Department.
Through generous sponsor donations, we were also able to pay for installation of Wi-Fi at Lake Arrowhead Park as well as a new Jon boat for the park in memory of our friend, James “Spading” Buracker.
Donations by athletes included:
- Luray International Community Slots: $5,750
- Luray Resident Slots: $1,990 (all Luray resident entry fees were donated to United Way)
- Additional athlete donations at time of registration: $636
