The Walnut Creek YMCA began hosting the Ice Breaker Triathlon in 2008 as a way to raise funds for their Annual Campaign, which supports those who are unable to otherwise afford memberships and programs at the Y. This year they added an additional beneficiary to the fundraising: Girls on the Run. "Girls on the Run of Polk County is a 10 week physical activity-based positive youth development program that inspires girls in 3rd—5th grade to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running."
