Board of Directors

At WHY Community, we recognize that many populations may have a strong WHY for completing a run or triathlon, but may not have the means to achieve that goal. We want to provide the opportunity and resources that may not otherwise exist for them because we believe so strongly in how it will positively impact their entire lives.
