Please join us in congratulating Vincent Vaccaro, the Greater Ossipee area Chamber of Commerce Business Person of year for 2016.
Vincent began his running career over 30 years ago. He started at Archbishop Molly High School and continued through college at Southern Ct. State University. Not long after that he moved to our valley.
Vince ran his first marathon in 2002 and has now completed a goal of running a marathon in every state. He has a master’s degree in Chi Running and Chi Walking as well as being a Certified Race Director.
In 2006 Vincent turned his passion of running into a business, with his company Tri Tek Events. Since its conception Tri Tek Events has organized well over 30 events in our area. To name a few - The King Pine Triathlon, Camp Huckins Tri-ath-loon, the Beech River Run and most recently the Pitch Pine Challenge. These events have brought thousands of people to our community over the years and many of these people stay for severl days. I know firsthand when Tri Tek has an event many businesses prepare for an influx of people coming to our area. Many of our local hotels sell out months in advance of a Tri Tek event weekend. That is just a small example of how our local economy benefits from these events.
Tri Tek Events not only brings a well needed boost to our local economy; each one of his events has a charitable component to it as well.
In the last three years Tri Tek Events has helped raise an excess of $100,000 for charities like
Freedom Food Pantry
Madison Pre School
Ossipee Main Street Program
The Aquatic Foundation & Fitness Foundation
The Laura Foundation
Camp Huckins Scholarship Foundation
Gretchen B Hatch Memorial Scholarship Fund
Kennett Key club
Just to name a few. . .
I want to thank the Vincent Vaccaro and his team at Tri Tek Events for being a member of the Greater Ossipee area Chamber of Commerce and for supporting so many organizations and charities here in our community!
Thank you Vincent
