Dr. Tina Merhoff said to herself one day, “How can I take my passion and faith and do something with it… do something important.” So a few years ago, several women formed what they call “the dream team. We sought to test our strength and determination in local triathlons and races and planned to utilize our faith to light a flame of hope and encouragement for women facing obstacles in their lives. It is a physical challenge that also provides us with a mental workout,” she said.
The name says it all: Tri4Life. A non-profit organization, Tri4Life serves to inspire and empower women in crisis. Its mission: to create a venue for God to be glorified as we use our physical health and strength to help others overcome various challenges in their lives with tremendous faith.
“All the training and conditioning that goes along with Tri4Life is good for us physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s very rewarding knowing you’re doing it for someone other than yourself. I like to run races with someone in mind – that’s what gets me through to the finish line. I draw that extra strength while I am out there,” she said.
The Tri4Life Foundation currently supports local organizations such as pregnancy support centers, battered women’s shelters, food banks, and other community groups in need. Contact the Tri 4 Life Foundation today to find out how you can help out… either directly, by attending one of our upcoming events or joining the team, or through our various sponsorship levels.
With each New Year, so many of us are all filled with hope for the future. We thank all of you who continue to give this hope to hundreds of women and children through your support of the Tri4Life Foundation.
