Triathlon for Diabetes

Hey everyone. I am T1 and a member of the University of Evansville swim and dive team and we are looking at ways to increase our volunteerism this year. One of the ideas that was brought up was hosting a triathlon with procedes benefiting diabetes research/awareness. We are trying to run with this idea, but as none of those involved in the planning has ever done something of this scale, we are looking for advice as to where/how to get started. If anyone has any advice or recommendations on how to pursue this idea, it would be great!
