The Tri Guys
August 12, 2020 | After four weeks of training, James Andrews, BCS'11, and Josh Bray, BCS'15, achieved their goal of completing a triathlon Monday morning.
Although the challenge was initially born out of a place of friendly rivalry, James and Josh quickly realized that it was an opportunity to highlight two organizations that matter to them. James chose to fundraise for the Cancer Research Society of Montreal
while Josh raised funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association
. "James and I initially got into it because of the competition," Josh expressed. "But fundraising for our causes quickly became our main focus and drive." In the month leading up to the triathlon they raised close to $2,500 collectively (and counting!)
The event which took place in Baldwin Mills, Quebec Monday morning saw the pair swimming 750 metres in Lake Lyster, cycling for 20 kilometres along Chemin de Barnston, and running five kilometres up and down Mont Pinacle. "It was a day not soon forgotten," Josh said about the event. "Thank you to all our supporters!"
