Letter: Triathlon fundraising movie

“Maybe I am not cut out for this…” Have you ever asked yourself that question? Whether it’s sports, career, parenting — we’ve all asked ourselves that question. When fictional character Natalie, in the movie “TRI,” asks herself that question, while working endless hours at the hospital as a cancer technician, she is talking about her first triathlon. But it’s more than just a triathlon, it’s a metaphor for her life, for all our lives. Challenges, hurdles, loss, with moments of self-doubt and worries of failure. But in the movie “TRI,” Natalie defies them all with her perseverance, commitment and ability to boss back negative thinking.

The Roaring Fork Women’s Triathlon Team is presenting the limited engagement screening of the movie “TRI,” by Red Zeppelin Productions, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, at the Crystal Theater, Main Street Carbondale. Movie trailer at http://www.triforcure.com.

“TRI” is a NOVA International Film Festival 2016 winner of Best Film, Actress, Inspirational, and Family; and Best Story Line winner of Boston International Film Festival 2016.

For 17 years the Roaring Fork Women’s Tri Team has promoted its mission of “Fun, Fitness, and Philanthropy” from Rifle to Aspen. The movie screening is a fundraiser for our team scholarship fund and our global sisterhood project of Organic Health Response, in Kenya.

Don’t miss this chance to make a difference in the lives of women in the Roaring Fork Valley as well as in Mfangano Island, Kenya. Tickets on sale online while they last for $20 at TRIMovie.Eventbrite.com. Leftover tickets available at the door. Tickets are limited so purchase early. For more information, contact any team member of the Roaring Fork Women’s Triathlon team or email nrein@rof.net.
