Experienced IABT Junior Multisport Club Co-Founders
Hope Is Where the Heart Is
IABT Junior Multisport Club was Founded by CEO, Dr. Tekemia Dorsey and Co-Founder Siblings Heaven Simons, Halee Simons, and Beloved Joshua (BJ) Simons when they were all just in elementary in 2014. The siblings along with their older brother Brandon, watched their Mom go from non-swimmer at age 43 to Ironman FINISHER in nine months and 15 days. Upon completion of Ironman, the sibling trio wanted to become TRIathletes and so their training with Mom, begin.
A few years ago, they had only hoped their LOVE for TRIathlons would catch on in urban communities. Some 4-5 years later it has through their Club Program (IABT Junior Multi-Sport Club) with the assistance of their host organizations (International Association of Black Triathletes and IABT MultiSport Racing. The Club Program exposes Club Athletes to more then just sports.
As they begin to take part in multisport events in Spring 2015 (duathlons, triathlons, etc), they noticed there were not many youth that looked like them and begin to question why? The outcome was simple there weren't as many black youth in the sport because they were unaware, unfamiliar and therefore not taking part.
Because of their dream, along with their Mom’s organizational vision, Dr. Tekemia Dorsey lives are changing in urban communities through the Multisport Industry.
IABT Junior Multisport Club is an AWARD WINNING Club who mission is to educate and to increase participation in the multisport industry for all but especially black youth and those living in urban communities.
Causes the Club have spearheaded include not limited to childhood obesity, adult obesity, cancer, and getting kids healthy and active through the swim, cycle and run initiative.
As a family, nothing is taken for granted and each day remains a BLESSING in and of itself. Learn more at www.iabtjuniormultisportclub.org.
