We started this journey in 2015 with the “Youth Splash and Dash,” and followed it up with the “Little Heroes Youth Tri,” both under the Thunder Mountain Games banner. Out of the ashes of the TMG rose Bolt Multisport, and we officially started independently hosting events in the fall of 2016.
Our first event was the Thunderbolt Youth Triathlon, for which we had 62 enthusiastic kids compete. We knew we had to continue this wonderful opportunity for kids and their families, so we planned the Firebolt Youth Triathlon in early 2017. Growth has continued as we boundlessly strive to improve these events!
In 2018, we came to the decision that we needed to sustain Bolt Multisport opportunities for every kid growing up in Southeastern Arizona for the foreseeable future. Bolt Multisport has always had a benevolent purpose. It made sense that we should transition from a private organization to a Non-Profit. Hence, near the end of May 2018, we officially received our 501(c)(3) designation. This means that donors can deduct contributions to us under IRC Section 170. We are also qualified to receive tax-deductible bequests, devises, transfers, and gifts under sections 2055, 2106, and 2522.
Our mission is for Bolt Multisport races to provide an opportunity for kids of all abilities to engage in the sport of triathlon, have fun, and be a part of something amazing. One of the best parts of our events is the inclusion and encouragement of special needs kids. “Bolt Multisport, Inc.” is a tax-exempt organization that strives to offer multisport events, training, and opportunities to promote fundamental life principles, health, and physical skills for the youth in Sierra Vista and surrounding areas.
