Triton Events will give a portion of each registration to Inheritance of Hope.  We would love to raise as much money as possible for this wonderful charity, so please consider any additional donations!

Inheritance of Hope is a non-profit organization that inspires hope in young families facing the loss of a parent. Since 2008, families from 38 states have attended a life-changing Legacy Retreat®, an all-expense paid experience where families can create lifelong memories while receiving tools to navigate the challenges of terminal illness. Team Inheritance of Hope has offered hundreds of athletes the opportunity to raise funds to help send families to these retreats through partnerships with endurance events. Join us as we inspire hope in these families and receive free registration into the Nuthouse Challenge!  Persevere for families:  Inheritance of Hope Nut House #JoinTheMovement
