Breath of Life Ventura Triathlon – Volunteers Needed!

Event organizers for this year’s Dina LaVigna Breath of Life Triathlon charity fundraiser in Ventura, CA are in need of volunteers.  For the past 16 years, my the LaVigna family has put on a Triathlon in honor of  Dina LaVigna who passed away from Primary Immunodeficiency (PI).  The Breath of Life Triathlon raises money to improve the care and comfort of patients (usually children), with PI.  Previous projects have been at Mt Sinai Hospital in New York, a $750,000 improvement at Mattel’s Children’s Hospital at UCLA, and the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.  Visit the website at:


This year’s big event is fast approaching. Here are details. Consider inking it in your calendar, volunteering some of your time and supporting the athletes and the cause.

The Breath of Life triathlon will be on the fourth *Sunday of June on the 22rd* inside the *Ventura Harbor*.  There are lots of activities to keep you busy and if you can help, the LaVigna Family we would really, really appreciate it!  They simply could not put on this tremendous fundraising event without the incredible support of our family and friends.

Last year the event hosted nearly 1000 registered athletes and nearly 200 volunteers – and every individual was needed!

Possible tasks include:

–          Registration Packet Distribution Saturday afternoon and/or Sunday morning

–          Swim Course Volunteer

–          Run/Bike Course Volunteer

–          Transition Area Volunteer

–          BBQ Volunteer

–          Parking Area Volunteer

Lots of options and much depends on how soon you’d be able to help in the morning, the earlier the better. If possible there is a need for Saturday volunteers to help setup and/or distribute race packets, from noon – 5pm.

Please email Ayndrea LaVigna Tyo at and let her know if you have a preference for what you’d like to do, or a required start/end time so they can best accommodate your schedule.  Tasks begin as early as 5am and as you might guess the earlier the harder it is to find volunteers.
