Come join the Volunteer Team for the 2019 Houston Texans Kids Triathlon as we host the largest kids triathlon in the U.S. This event would not be possible without volunteers and our friends at Chevron, the official volunteerism partner of the Houston Texans. This year’s event is expected to draw more than 3,000 participants and 10,000 spectators. In total, we need about 350 volunteers to run a safe, efficient event. 

If you are part of a group that is willing and able to help, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Charlene Alcorn, directly at Char@KidsTriathlonInc.org. This is a great opportunity for volunteer groups from companies, sororities, fraternities, triathlon clubs, churches, scouts and schools.
