Your tax-deductible donation to the Great American Triathlon® will do more than help continue the legacy of this Sacramento institution, it will help children in need live safer, healthier, happier lives and to help sustain the beauty and accessibility of the American River Parkway.

About Reach Your Potential
Reach Your Potential is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 2016 in order to help disabled children acquire expensive complex rehabilitation equipment.
In 2019, RYP began support of the Great American Triathlon (www.GreatAmericanTriathlon.com), the successor to the world’s oldest modern triathlon, in order to raise money for Sacramento region children’s charities including local chapters of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, RYP is once again expanding its support of children by helping with the collection of supplies and funds to assist Northern California’s pediatric subacute facilities in keeping the State’s ventilator-dependent children safe during this life-threatening event.
