Celebrating 30 Years
The Triathlon of Compassion is the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre’s (VSAC) longest-running and biggest annual fundraising event. In 1993, the first annual triathlon for healing was organized. The triathlon eventually became known as the Triathlon of Compassion and has become a community event with racers and fundraisers of all ages. The event helps raise funds and awareness to support the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre’s essential programs. Our partners, Human Powered Racing, host the race each year. We are deeply grateful to them for their ongoing support.
Since the Triathlon of Compassion began, folks like you have fundraised over $400,000 for the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre! It’s incredible what our community can do together. We look forward to celebrating 30 years of the Triathlon with another great event this year.
