Harmony Energy was delighted to support the Brownlee Foundation Mini-Triathlon Events and witness the incredible impact they have on children.

These events aim to inspire children from all backgrounds to enjoy sports and physical activity, promoting active and healthy lifestyles. For some children, it was their first experience riding a bike or swimming, while for others, it reinforced their passion for sports through participation in all three disciplines.

The Brownlee Foundation, a charity established by Olympic medal-winning triathletes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee to motivate and engage children in physical activity and sports, has held the mini-triathlon series since 2014.

Friday marked a special occasion for the foundation as it returned to the Harrogate Leisure and Wellness Centre, where staff from Harmony Energy volunteered to support the day.

A proud partner of the Brownlee Foundation, Harmony Energy CEO Peter Kavanagh said: “It was great to be back at the Brownlee Foundation Mini-Triathlon Events. Witnessing the positive impact of these events on young participants is truly inspiring, and we are excited to be a part of such a meaningful cause.”

Alistair Brownlee said: “Our theory is a simple one. We expose as many young people as possible to Triathlon, to highlight that sport can, and should, be fun. We hope that all the participants will have a fun day, and that a few will be inspired to do more. It does not matter if more is a bit of exercise with their friends, or a lot more with their competitors.

“None of this could happen without our dedicated team of employees and volunteers, who are at venues all week in the sun and the rain. Thank you also to the schools and teachers who bring their pupils to the events.

“The Foundation is privately funded so our commercial partners are essential, thank you for your support.”
