The Gilbert Firm Sponsors Annual Kids Triathlon to Promote Unity and Fun

The Gilbert Firm has become a sponsor of the Hub City Kids Triathlon and I CAN TRI event.

Gilbert Russell McWherter Scott & Bobbitt PLC is proud to sponsor the Third Annual Hub City Kids Triathlon featuring the Second Annual I CAN TRI Triathlon, taking place in Jackson, Tennessee on August 6, 2016. The event is co-hosted by the Therapy and Learning Center and The Jackson Swim Boosters.

“It’s really important to us that we give back to the community at every level,” said attorney Jessica Salonus. “My son, Grey, competed in the I CAN TRI triathlon last year, so I know firsthand just how incredible this event is. It allows families whose children have different abilities to compete together, and to cheer each other on. As an attorney who advocates for students with disabilities, I see this event as evidence that unity and inclusion really promotes a healthier environment for all kids. As a parent, to see my son beaming over his ‘gold medal,’ and to see how excited he is to participate again this year – I don’t have words to explain what that means to me.”

The Hub City Kids Triathlon is a USA Triathlon sanctioned event. USAT is the National Governing Body for triathlon and other multi-sport events.
