CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSABILITY
Corporate Social Responsibility is a matter we take very seriously at Triton WS and part of our internal policy.
Through the series we contact with thousands of athletes, family members, friends and partners and have a unique opportunity to capitalize on his tremendous potential to make a difference.
Through LOFF Association, a non-profitable organization and our official Charity Partner, we have two ongoing projects, the 365 Bikes4Kids and the Footprints program and you can get involved in both or chose your favorite.
About 365 Bikes4Kids
This program has a very simple concept and consists in donating bikes to underprivileged kids in the region where the event takes place. Symbolically the name of the program means we aim to donate 1 bike a day, every day of the year.
Bikes have everything to do with the event.
Bikes serve to promote a healthy life style and environmentally sustainable way of transportation to kids that may not have another way to get to school and other places.
Bikes also give kids a chance to have fun and play as all kids should.
To get involved all you need to do is set up a fundraising project. How does it work?

Our Planet’s sustainability is in our hands
It’s up to us to take care of it and to decide if we want to participate.
As a participating athlete you become an Ambassador of the event and an Ambassador of a lifestyle, an example admired by many.
We believe in the strong positive communication ability that sports have and we challenge you to be part of it. We believe in being grateful to the environment that welcomes participating athletes and being grateful to the community.
The leave nothing but footprints program suggests you join our cleaning staff for 30 minutes after each segment to clean up after yourself (friends and family members are welcome to join you), passing on a unique and positive message, gratitude and example to society in general and to the community in particular, that you care!
The 30 minutes is just a reference on how much we can do with so little, you can do less or more time. With very little we achieve great and amazing results.
It’s the butterfly effect!
LEAVE NOTHING BUT FOOTPRINTS
HOW IT WORKS
When you check-in at the race office just say you want to be part of the leave nothing but footprints program. You will receive a free leave nothing but footprints wristband you must wear at each race, the swim, the bike and the run (identifies you as part of the program and you can ask one for your friends and family as well if they want to join you).
After you cross the finish line for each event you will be given a trash bag by our staff and as many as you ask for your team of friends and family.
leave nothing but footprints
All You have to do is go help collect the trash generated by yourself and other athletes.
We reinforce that this program is NOT mandatory and that the organization takes all measures to lower the impact on the environment and “leave nothing but footprints”.
No one will time you or follow you to see you follow through with your promise or not, it’s up to you to want to get involved and follow our mantra: leave nothing but footprints.
After you collect the trash you deliver it to our staff at a close by designated area and the staff will weight it for you and make a note of how much trash in weight you and your group has collected.
