For many years, we’ve been attempting at popularizing physical activity and healthy lifestyle by organizing triathlon. TTIDH competition has become a perfect arena for integrating participants, fans, families and employees who took part in this event within working teams. I’m really happy that we can benefit from the space of Alchemia in such a unique way and organize this event under its roof. In collaboration with Jeppesena Foundation, we’ve managed to develop the formula of charitable goal and support the actions of Pomorze Dzieciom Foundation – Home Hospice – says Monika Brzozowska, Torus, organizer of TTIDH competition.
Working teams that competed with each other were composed of 3-4 people (swimmer, bicyclist, runner, optionally trainer and motivator).
