The Race 4 Chase program honors the life of Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski and is a youth triathlon program focused on providing kids with a safe, healthy, non-competitive environment to discover the sport of triathlon. In the triathlon program, participants strengthen their skills in swimming, biking, and running and also enjoy games for team building, learning about nutrition, and building a healthy lifestyle. All participants are required to attend the R4C finale at YMCA Camp Sloper in Southington.

Applications for the program are made available in late March 2022.  Space is limited, applications are reviewed and registrations are sent to families who are selected for the program.

Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski was a first-grader who lost his life at the Sandy Hook tragedy of 2012 and loved the sport of triathlon, winning the first youth triathlon he ever attempted.


8:30AM – 12:00PM
Each day, participants will practice using the indoor pool and Camp Mahackeno space to strengthen their skills in swimming, biking and running. Participants will also enjoy games to strengthen us as a team as well as learn about nutrition and taking care of our bodies.


Applications for the program are will be made available near the end of March 2022 for the Summer of 2022. Since space is limited, applications will be reviewed and registration packets will be sent to children who are selected for the program.


Free, with fundraising goal of $150 per child encouraged
$10 membership fee to USAT for USA Triathlon membership

Race 4 Chase is supported by the Chase Michael Anthony Kowalski Foundation. The program is free to participate in but we do ask that our athletes aim to reach a $150 fundraising goal for each child. Participants will be given ideas on how they can raise money and we ask that donations be submitted by July 5th. There is also a $10 membership fee that parent will pay to USAT when they register their child for their USA Triathlon membership.


We are looking for sponsorship to help us keep Race 4 Chase going. If you or your company are interested in supporting this amazing program, please contact Jesse Kanaple, jkanaple@westporty.org for more information or review our sponsorship packet.
