The athlete team is joined this year by a team of Power Coaches. These coaches, all military veterans and employees of title sponsor Power Home Remodeling, participate in the games by supporting their assigned athlete with information, mental & physical strategy, tactical support and encouragement.
The Travis Manion Foundation, the Power Triumph Games non-profit partner, hosts a "Character Does Matter Challenge." The challenge paired athletes with children from the West Point, NY, area inspiring them to complete physical challenges, coaching the youth through curriculum focused on character traits including honesty, teamwork, leadership, moral courage, integrity, and fairness.
Johnson & Johnson, Power Triumph Games Exclusive Health & Wellness Sponsor, and sponsor of the Travis Manion Foundation Character Does Matter program, increases the excitement by honoring the athlete that demonstrated the strongest personal connection and understanding of character with a Character Does Matter Award.
"This year's athletes are a deep mix of character, class and pure grit. We're looking forward to seeing them perform at a level that strikes a nerve with our viewers, and engages them to cheer on their favorite athlete to become Champion," said Power Triumph Games CEO, Mary Hagy.
