“We are pleased to help present a positive event such as the Triathlon in our community and to be able to donate a portion of the proceeds to such a worthy cause,” stated Gina DaBiere-Gibbs, Director of Tourism for Fulton County.  “Fulton County is fortunate to have such a great event that showcases the area to visitors.  And the Boys & Girls Club is an essential venue for our youth to be involved with.”

The Boys & Girls Club of Gloversville promotes the social, educational, health, leadership, and character development of boys and girls during critical periods of their growth.  The Gloversville Chapter serves all youth of Fulton County, with special concern for youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, to become responsible citizens and leaders.  For more information about the Boys & Girls Club of Gloversville, please call (518) 725-1711.
