Tri 4 Schools offers grants for large-scale school-based initiatives each year. We also offer scholarships to athletes in our community who have financial need.

School Funds Grant

The funds for this grant are made possible through our race entry fee revenue.   The purpose of our school grants are to fund large-scale initiatives that would not otherwise be possible.

Some examples of winning grant proposals:

  • Waunakee Elementary Schools: Waunakee purchased a railyard fitness system (see images to the left) for all three of their elementary schools, which is inclusive of students of all abilities and fitness levels.
  • Glacier Creek Middle School: GCMS implemented active classroom tools, like stability balls, pedals for seated desks, and balance boards and discs.
  • Marshall Elementary: Marshall purchased a new, high tech pedometer system to help kids track their movement and steps all day long, and see their results immediately. We all can identify with the motivation that comes from achieving your health goals, and this will introduce kids to the concept of daily movement.
  • MMSD: We helped all of Madison’s elementary schools with their rollerblading unit, an annual favorite unit in phy-ed class, by purchasing new elbow and knee pads.  We hope this will help keep kids safe while moving!
  • Schenk Elementary: Schenk is in the process of updating and renovating their playground and recess spaces, and we funded two new rolling carts, stocked with all the coolest recess equipment kids would want!
  • Westside Elementary: Westside implemented mindfulness curriculum and equipment into all of their classrooms, helping their students (many of whom come from high-stress environments and situations) focus, reduce stress, and self regulate for optimal classroom learning.

Grant Details

In light of the changes to our events due to COVID-19, our grant process and awards will look quite different in 2020.  Details on this year’s grant process will be forthcoming by September 1, 2020.
