Exceeding Expectations
Cathedral City, CA
Exceeding Expectations, a program in San Bernardino that serves an inner-city population, is designed to encourage at-risk kids to move their lives in a positive direction, using the sport of triathlon as the vehicle. The goal is not to develop the kids into elite athletes, but rather to offer them opportunities to participate in a lifestyle that is healthy, goal-oriented, and very unlike that which they experience in their everyday lives. They strive to replace negative influences with positive role models and to instill in the kids a powerful new discipline of setting measurable goals and working hard to achieve them. Their highest priority is education, and their ultimate objective is to ensure that every one of the kids graduates high school and goes on to college.
