Race4Chase triathlon program expanding

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) A children's triathlon program inspired by the life a 7-year-old boy who was killed in the Sandy Hook School shooting is expanding in Connecticut.

The CMAK Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation has reached an agreement with the Greater Waterbury YMCA, Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut in Danbury and the Central Connecticut Coastal YMCA in Trumbull to host the Race4Chase Kid's Tri program.

The program will start in June, teaching kids swimming, running and bicycling for six weeks. A short-course triathlon competition at Camp Mataucha in Watertown is set for Aug. 2.

The program honors Chase Kowalski, who competed in his first triathlon the summer before he was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School with 19 other students and six educators.

A signing ceremony launching the program is set for Thursday at the Greater Waterbury YMCA.
