SEVENTH ANNUAL MAHOPAC TYATHLON
Sprint Triathlon Followed by a 5K Run/Walk to
Benefit The Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research
Swim, bike, run or walk in support of childhood cancer research! The seventh annual TYathlon honors Ty Louis Campbell, a young boy who lost his battle to brain cancer at the age of five. In honor of Ty and all children diagnosed with cancer, the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation is hosting a sprint triathlon where friends can swim, bike and run around beautiful Lake Mahopac. There is also a 5k walk/run following the triathlon that is well attended by hundreds from the Mahopac community and beyond.
Registration for the 2019 event is already open (here). Over the past six years, this event has enabled the TLC Foundation to pledge more than $300,000 to fund the “Ty Louis Campbell Research Fellowship” at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

All proceeds raised as a result of the Mahopac TYathlon will benefit the TLC Foundation for childhood cancer research. Pediatric cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children, and almost one out of four children diagnosed with cancer do not survive more than 5 years. For those that do survive treatment, 65% will suffer from serious long-term side effects. TLC seeks more effective, less harmful treatment options specifically designed for children.
