  Published at  | Updated at

AMMON — Ammon Pool Advocates group will be holding the annual Ammon City Kids’ Triathlon on July 1 this year, the group announced. Funds raised will be used to help efforts to design and build a replacement for the Ammon pool.

The mission of the non-profit organization, according to their website, is “to raise the funds to replace the aging Ammon Pool with a new facility that will better serve the community of Ammon.”

“The continued growth in the communities in and around Ammon has increased the demand on the aquatic facilities that are currently available,” the group states on their website.
