 How We Work

Tri 4 Schools is unique in that we partner with local schools to make the most impact on the health of kids, as well as through our own programming. Every year, we donate thousands of dollars to schools to support everything from mindfulness programs to new equipment for phy-ed classes.  We welcome all kids – learn more about our adaptive events here.
