Alaska IronKids promotes 'outdoor play' through Alaska Nutrition. Action. Champion. Program. More than just a race, it is a venue for families to bond in a shared activity, giving the parents a chance to show their children that being physically fit and healthy is more fun. It also fosters the importance of starting the day right with a combination of exercise and proper nutrition.

Cecille Villaverde, mother of 8 year old Nickey, a first timer at the Aquathlon, has this to say:

"It's an overwhelming experience for all of us. He was really scared to join since he just started with his swimming lessons a few weeks back, little did we know that he would be picked to join the alaska ironkid event. We would always have our "iyakan"sessions before his trainings. Actually, the fact that he was picked out of all the kids in his swimming class was already a humbling experience. We were all anxious during the event because we know for a fact that he is just a newbie in this field, nevertheless, we are so proud of him because he finished it with a big smile on his face.We are planning to enroll him in an advance class to refine his skills and probably join again in the next event."
