On July 29, 2018, Team Asniya participated in the Cornhusker Triathlon in Lincoln, NE. The team, consisting of Tracy, Alex and Kasey, used the triathlon as an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for Asniya's Future American Indian Health Professionals (FAIHP) program. FAIHP is a new iniative that aims to inspire and educate students who are interested in pursuing careers in healthcare and the health sciences.
Team Asniya began this tradition in 2015, and has participated in the Wildlife Loop Triatlhlon in beautiful Custer State Park in South Dakota and Yankton's Best Triathlon at Lewis & Clark Lake in Yankton, SD. The Wildlife Loop Triathlon, with 1.2 miles of swimming, 56 miles of biking, and 13.1 miles of running, was the longest race so far. The team competes in the races as a relay team, with Tracy as the team's swimmer, Kasey as the cyclist, and Alex running the final leg of the race.
The team gathered pledges on the GoFundMe platform, and raised $1,150 for Asniya this year. Congratulations, Tracy, Alex, and Kasey, and thanks for your dedication and your support of Asniya!
