Event details and schedule
Join us on September 16 at Lake Mahopac as we swim, bike, run (or walk) in support of pediatric cancer research! Our 10th Annual TYathlon consists of a sprint triathlon and family-friendly 5K walk/run to raise funds to support the Ty Louis Campbell Fellowship at New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell. Through this investment, TLC pays the salary of an experienced doctor/researcher who is dedicated to collecting genetic bio-information on all types of pediatric brain tumor samples in order to provide individual treatment protocols with precision medicine to children battling cancer. Your support is of TREMENDOUS value to this organization, and it truly helps move the needle forward in making these events a success in memory of Ty!

OUR INSPIRATION...We call him SuperTy because he was our little fighter. Ty Louis Campbell, the “best good boy in the whole wide world,” graced this earth for five beautiful years, and before he left he made it a better place to live. He made an astounding impact on all who heard his story. He inspired individuals around the world to make the most of their lives and to rally against childhood cancer by raising awareness.
Ty was astoundingly beautiful and always quick to smile. His sheer magnetism developed not because of the cancer that consumed him, but rather his love for life that defined him. After fighting valiantly for half his life, fists blazing, Ty was finally freed from suffering. Ty finally beat cancer once and for all when he became a beloved angel on October 17, 2012. His eternal spirit lives on in our hearts, and his story continues to impact others.
