Established in 2011, Strive To Tri, Inc. (STRIVE) is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization. The STRIVE focus is to empower the youth of Prince George’s County, ages 7 to 17, to adopt a healthy lifestyle through regular physical activity, participation in sports, and healthy eating. 

Our Mission

The STRIVE mission is simple yet multi-faceted: promotion of healthy lifestyle choices through structured programming. Ranging from free aquatic based camps that instruct basic water safety skills, USA Triathlon (USAT) sanctioned youth friendly races and a development triathlon club for all ability levels, STRIVE’s diverse programming palette was designed for universal functionality.

“We are looking forward to expanding upon the success of previous Strive seasons for the most robust year yet. With great continuing partnerships and increased interest across the board, Strive will remain focused on being a beacon of hope for the Prince George’s County and the DMV region at large.”
— Tarus Nelson, Executive Director, Strive To Tri, Inc.
