Running a half marathon is not the only way to get fit while benefitting nonprofits in the Brazos Valley.

The kid’s triathlon will be held on June 24 and the adult sprint triathlon, called TriAggieland, will be held on July 15 in College Station on the Texas A&M University campus. All proceeds will benefit the Children’s Museum of the Brazos Valley. Visit cmbv.org or call (979) 779-5437 for more information.
