What an incredible 365 days around the sun! V3 Sports was victorious in 2022 and we owe many thanks to our partners, donors, and volunteers for making these victories possible. We have much more to accomplish in 2023, but before the new year rolls in, check out our top five highlights from 2022!
HIGHLIGHT #5 – WATER SAFETY FESTIVAL
V3 Sports partnered with Diversity in Aquatics, Swim 1922, and Abbey’s Hope to hold a fun day of swimming and learning about water safety, skin and hair care, aquatic careers, and playing games to strengthen those aquatic skills!
HIGHLIGHT #4 – BACK TO SCHOOL GIVEAWAY w/ HEALTHYLYFE
V3 Sports participated in the inaugural Live Your Healthy Lyfe block party hosted by community member Teto Wilson along West Broadway Avenue North. At the event V3 was able to supply 100 students with book bags filled with supplies. V3 also partnered with Wildon to raffle 25 brand new Huffy youth bikes to attendees.
HIGHLIGHT #3 – SAOIC STEAM WATER FESTIVAL
V3 partnered with Summit Academy OIC’s STEM Saturday programming to host a dual water-themed learning experience. Youth learned to put life jackets on safely, how to get in and out of a pool, jump in the deep end, basic swim strokes, understand buoyancy, learn basic CPR and first aid and also about aquatic careers!
HIGHLIGHT #2 – DO MORE THAN TRI…. FINISH STRONG
Nearly 50 youth participated in the first ever V3 Sports “Do More Than Tri….Finish Strong” introductory triathlon in North Minneapolis. As many as 50 hard-working volunteers helped ensure the day was filled with excitement, safety and fun, while also providing a clear introduction to youth who had never heard of triathlon-let alone imagined participating in one.
HIGHLIGHT #1 – GROUND BREAKING CEREMONY
We’ve been a part of the North Minneapolis community for more than a decade, helping youth follow their dreams and achieve greatness through sport and academic achievement. After years of fundraising, we’re building a place to provide affordable and accessible world class fitness opportunities, indoor aquatic programming, nutritious food, and educational and business opportunities for you, your family members and your friends!
