After two successful years since the launch of Team LC, four-time triathlon world champion, Leanda Cave, is looking to add even more women to her ambassadorship program – with the number of ambassadors increasing from 18 to 30 for this year.
Team LC is a mentor program created to empower women through triathlon by giving an opportunity to women of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds to become an influencer of living a healthy lifestyle in each of their respective communities. Its ultimate goal is to encourage women to participate in triathlons as well as build and grow a strong community of physically active women.
The program is built on the core beliefs and values which were instilled to Leanda throughout her 20-year career as well as leveraging ‘who she is today because of the sport of triathlon’.
“Team LC is going from strength to strength since it began in 2016,” said Leanda Cave. “Our ambassadors are spreading the word about empowering women through triathlon at races and events held all over the country. It’s so encouraging to see our Team LC ladies not only supporting each other but women in their communities. We are very proud to share our experiences and inspire other women to take up triathlon as a sport so they too can enrich their lives.”
She continued, “Team LC is very grateful for the help of our amazing sponsors, supporters and the Leanda Cave Foundation that enable us to expand from 18 to 30 women in 2018. It’s very exciting to help give more women this unique opportunity.”
In addition to increasing its number of ambassadors, Team LC will participate in over 100 triathlons in 2018.
Female triathletes from all walks of life comprise the team; and each member contributes by sharing her unique gifts and leadership skills. The ambassadors aim to make the sport a better place now and for future generations of female triathletes.
The team is looking to recruit women full of energy and motivation who will have a positive influence on others, encourage other women to participate in triathlons, sport and female leadership in the business world, and who will promote living a healthy lifestyle in their community.
Team LC will provide ambassadors with financial means, product endorsements, mentoring, coaching, camps and a supportive community that will enable the athletes to realize their personal and professional goals. Funds for the team will come from various partners and the Leanda Cave Foundation.
Those interested in applying to become one of the 30 Team LC ambassadors in 2018 should fill out the application online. The deadline to apply is 31 January 2018. Ambassadors will be chosen by 16 February 2018.
