A different kind of triathlon for a good cause


A standard triathlon consists of running, biking, and swimming; however, not all have the stamina to do that. So, for a charitable cause, a Northern Virginia organization is offering what they call a ‘Fat Man’s Triathlon.’ 

The Centreville Moose Lodge in Fairfax, Virginia hosted their second annual Fat Man’s Triathlon, which consists of playing pool, darts, and shuffleboard. The idea of the event is to offer games that everyone can participate in. It also serves as a fundraiser to pay for the medical bills of a lodge member who had a life-altering stroke. Organizers say it’s a fun way to bond, compete, and give back all in one afternoon.

“All the proceeds from everything we do today, between the triathlon, our Kentucky Derby sweepstakes, and also a Cinco de Mayo party that we are having later on tonight… many raffles that we are doing over the course of the day, and all of the proceeds are going to him today,” said Jeff Elliott, Governor of Centreville Moose Lodge. 

The Lodge has already raised $3,000 for Steve Lewis.
