Every other year Triangle partners with Courts for Kids [C4K] on a mission trip meant for cultural exchange and to build a multi-functional outdoor cement court with the community. This is Triangle's third such mission trip; the first two were to Ciudad Neily, Costa Rica and Guayajayuco, Dominican Republic in 2014 and 2016 respectively. This year a group comprised of student-athletes and staff will head to Chalhuapuquio, Peru.
In January, sophomore through senior Triangle athletes will be presented with the details of trip, submit their applications and will begin their preparation. Athletes will fundraise to cover at least 1/2 of their trip costs while also sharing with the Triangle community the many things they learn about the community in which they will live while on the trip. Anticipated trip dates: July 10-19. Details TBD.
