Experience the evolution of a series. Staying true to the spirit of her, the Gildan Esprit de She Naperville Triathlon was born out of the successful SheROX Triathlon previously held in Naperville. Hosted at Centennial Beach, a site of summer fun that has charmed swimmers, sunbathers and picnickers for over seventy-five years, you will be swept off your feet as you enjoy a calm swim and beautiful scenery along the Riverwalk Park run course.
Once you reach the finish, the Gildan Esprit de She signature post-race rendezvous awaits! Celebrate your success and enjoy tasty tapas and energetic tunes while browsing our bustling, community market showcasing fresh produce, local artisans, creative projects and more!
Become a Soulmate
In partnership with Girls on the Run International, Gildan Esprit de She challenges you to run with purpose by helping your local council, to expand their programming to more girls in your community.
Imagine yourself crossing the finish line at a Gildan Esprit de She event with other strong, powerful women. Now, imagine celebrating your accomplishment together in a way that is deeply meaningful and impactful. Indeed, this is the sisterhood we speak of—a common bond that inspires women to encourage and support each other along their journey of empowering the next generation of women to lead strong, healthy, and confident lives.
Girls on the Run International and Gildan Esprit de She invite you to join this sisterhood by “running with purpose.” Girls on the Run inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Your local council, Girls on the Run of Triangle, needs your help to inspire more girls to activate their limitless potential within your local community. The cost of participating in the transformational program is $205 per girl, and outfitting girls with proper running footwear costs approximately $60 per girl. With 30% of girls within your community receiving some form of financial assistance, your support is deeply valued and will have a great impact on a local level.
Gildan Esprit de She is proud to continue its longtime relationship with the official local charitable partner of the Gildan Esprit de She Naperville Triathlon, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance (OCRFA).
As the largest global organization dedicated to fighting ovarian cancer, OCRFA is advancing private research, and advocating for increased federal research and awareness dollars, and policy that gives women access to the services they need, while also supporting women and their families before, during and after a diagnosis.
Since 1998, OCRFA has awarded 255 grants totaling nearly $70 million for ovarian cancer research to top scientists at 69 leading medical centers. We invest our dollars wisely, supporting the best ovarian cancer research in the nation.
OCRFA TEAM HOPE
For more than a decade, participants in the Gildan Esprit de She Naperville Triathlon have shown their commitment to the cause by joining OCRFA Team Hope and pledging to raise awareness and funds for research. Since the inception of the Gildan Esprit de She Naperville Triathlon, OCRFA Team Hope members have helped raise over $1.1 million for critical ovarian cancer research.
To become part of this dedicated group of women racing to end a disease that affects 22,000 women in the U.S. every year, join OCRFA Team Hope and cross the finish line for the cause.
There is no minimum fundraising requirement to join OCRFA Team Hope!
After joining, you’ll receive a webpage to personalize, share with friends to raise awareness and collect donations in support of your race.
