ST. LOUIS – From the racing to the cheering and fundraising, the ninth annual Tri My Best continues to change the lives of children with motor disabilities.

This year, 49 remarkable young athletes competed at Washington University, showcasing their determination, strength, and spirit. The event is one of the few adaptive triathlons for children in the United States and has become a cherished tradition since its inception in 2015.

The Tri My Best Triathlon serves as a fundraiser, with participants having the option to create fundraising pages to support cerebral palsy programming at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. In 2023, these young athletes will have shattered previous records by raising an astounding $52,825, marking the highest fundraising year for Tri My Best to date.  

The funds generated through Tri My Best will go towards a wide range of cerebral palsy services and programs, including the event itself. These initiatives are specially designed to promote the integration of young people with cerebral palsy and related disabilities into sports activities.
