MT. OLIVE - More than 800 athletes participated in the 6th annual International Trade Center (ITC) Triathlon on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2002 with a course of biking, canoeing and running around the Budd Lake area under overcast skies.
The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the New Jersey Special Olympics Area 3 that serves more than 600 families in Morris, Warren and
Sussex counties. These funds go directly to support their athletic programs. The ITC Alliance, an association of companies located in the International Trade Center and the major organizing group behind the event,
donated $10,000 to the Special Olympics.
The secondary purposes of the triathlon are to offer a safe and fun recreational event in Mt. Olive
