Oswego, NY – Oswego Health has once again been named a sponsor of the Tri-Oswego Triathlon, which will be held Saturday, June 15th in Oswego, New York, according to Tri-Oswego Race Director Shane Broadwell.
Oswego Health’s sponsorship fits a goal of the health system’s state-required community
service plan to promote physical activity in the community.
“The Tri-Oswego event has been a success over the years because of the strong partnerships we maintain, including that of Oswego Health,” said Broadwell. “Oswego Health as part of its sponsorship will have personnel from the Oswego Hospital emergency room on hand and has also provided funding for more effective event signage,” said Broadwell.
According to Broadwell, the new signage and banners were a result of survey information gathered from participants from this past year’s Tri-Oswego event.
“We are always pleased to hear the positive and constructive feedback from our race participants,” said Broadwell. “Being able to continuously make this event favorable for our athletes year-after-year, is ultimately always our goal.”
The USA Triathlon sanctioned event will include a Sprint, Intermediate, and Sprint Relay Tri race again this year. The Novelis Kid’s Fun Run, and the new Tri-Oswego Splash and Dash for children 11-15 years of age are also planned for June 15th.
All proceeds will benefit youth development programs throughout Oswego County through the Oswego County Sunset Group.
“Oswego Health is proud to be a part of the Tri-Oswego event once again this year,” said Ann C. Gilpin, Oswego Health President and CEO. “The event continues to grow in participants, and has built a strong reputation in the Tri community as one of the top events in the region. We look forward to an exciting and safe race for everyone, and invite the community to participate and support the activities.”
