Lynn Mattix is a wife, mom, USAF veteran, military spouse, age-grouper in triathlon, and the founder of Fund Her Tri.
Fund Her Tri is a nonprofit that pursues equality in triathlon, breaks down the financial barrier & makes triathlon more accessible to women & girls. The Fund Her Tri team raises money to pay race registration fees for first-time, female triathletes. Lynn says, “In an effort to grow the participation of women in the sport of triathlon, I wanted to start an organization that provides financial resources to first-timers. My professional background is in aviation so starting a nonprofit is outside my comfort zone, but if triathlon has taught me anything, it’s that I’m capable of far more than I ever dreamed possible. I have been doing triathlons for 10 years and I hope to continue doing it forever. The sport has changed my life in the best way.”
