Something exciting is going down at Lake Lurleen State Park this weekend--the fourth annual Tuscaloosa Kids Triathlon starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 21, 2016!

The Tuscaloosa Kids Triathlon is for kids ages 6 to 13; the event includes running, biking, and swimming. After the competition, more fun activities begin: Bama Bounders will have an obstacle course set up, and kids can take a photo with Big Al.

The exciting event is a fundraiser for Secret Meals for Hungry Children, a local non-profit dedicated to assisting the children in our community who suffer from food insecurity. Secret Meals for Hungry Children provides these children with food--placing the items in their backpacks on Fridays to ensure the children have enough to eat over the weekend. The program helps an estimated 1,100 kids in the Tuscaloosa and Northport.
