There's always something going on at Live Grit Soars!



your time is valuable - put it to good use

Maybe triathlons and running aren't really your thing. Another great way to be a part of Live Grit Soars is to volunteer! Our programs cannot run without the help of our volunteers. From being a coach and mentor at an after-school program to helping on event days, there are many opportunities to get involved. And you don't need to be an endurance athlete! Reach out to us to learn more. 

Volunteer with us!

2022 Chicago Triathlon Charity Team  

how it works

Fundraising format... 

When you join the Live Grit SOARS team through Renew Chicago, every dollar raised will go directly to our program. Unlike the majority of charity endurance teams, Live Grit SOARS and Renew Chicago do not have fundraising minimums because we focus on recruiting athletes who are dedicated to our cause. Members will have access to best in class fundraising software through Facebook and DonorDrive and will receive guidance on setting up your fundraising page, best practices, and more.  

What you get when you join our team...


  • Entry into the 2022 Chicago Triathlon and a start position in the Charity Wave (optional)

  • Custom Live Grit SOARS and Renew Chicago performance tees 

  • Private VIP areas for pre and post-race celebrations on race day 

  • Coaching and clinics, a series of in-person/online training programs and content

  • The opportunity to earn awesome prizes, gear and incentives from our sponsors and partners 

  • Social events throughout the season & the Race Week Banquet 

  • The best training community in Chicago!
