Team TPS completes 410km challenge for charity
Published on 19 Aug 2020
They came, they saw, they conquered! And they raised over $3500!
A massive WELL DONE to our team of TPS TRYers (Rob Banyard, Nick Ross, Fabrice Dussol, and Alex Kalmanofsky and her husband Johnny) who completed challenges at the weekend to raise funds for the Conquer Cancer Foundation!
From the rolling hills of Surrey in the UK, to the streets, parks and coastline of New York, they covered 366km between them, either cycling, walking or running. Or a combination of all three.
What is a TRY? The concept of the TRY was developed by Burning Survivors, a community of cancer survivors living and taking care of themselves the best they can, and then supporting each other when help is needed, wishing to live life to the fullest, and be brave and fearless while always keeping the larger community in mind.
A TRY is any physical feat a person trains for, push themselves to do, that raises money for their favourite cancer-related non-profit organization. For some, it can be a triathlon or climbing a mountain. While for others walking a 5k or even around the block is as much as they can do.
- Alex challenged herself to walk 10k, cycle 40k, and then walk a further 5k.
- Rob challenged himself to run 10km, cycle 160km, and run a further 10k.
- Nick challenged himself to cycle 50km, but achieved 80km.
- Fabrice challenged himself to walk 40km.
- And Alex’s husband – Johnny – also took part and completed 55km of walking and cycling.
Congratulations team – you met your goals! An amazing feat and we’re all immensely proud of you!
The sponsorship monies ($3547) will now be donated to the Conquer Cancer Foundation. (If you’d still like to donate… you can! Just click here.)
