Be AMYazing! Reston Youth Triathlon is now entering its fourth year and has become a regularly anticipated addition to Reston’s triathlon lineup. It has created a fun venue for a growing number of children to test their athletic spirit and achieve their own personal triumphs! It is a unique student-inspired, student-led event coordinated by Amy’s Amigos in conjunction with The Core Foundation. Amy’s Amigos is a South Lakes High School club that focuses on raising money for brain cancer research and empowering young adults to live fit and have fun.
Amy’s Amigos formed in 2008 in memory of Amy Boyle, a sixth grader who lost her battle with brain cancer. Inspired by Amy’s spirit, athleticism and love of life, Amy’s Amigos has participated in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, numerous fundraisers and then created the annual Be AMYazing! Reston Youth Triathlon . The group has raised over $60,000 dollars in total for cancer research. The $32,000 in proceeds from Reston Youth Triathlon, Be AMYazing! is contributed to the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation.
