My good friend Mark Weyer and I are embarking on the first ever Triathlon of Adventure. We are riding our bicycles from Florida to California, then thru hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, then riding our bicycles to Lake Itasca in Minnesota, and thru paddling the Mississippi river. While we are doing this trip for personal growth and and enjoyment, we figured we could try and give back as well by raising money to get more teens outdoors to experience and respect nature the way we do. When I was in high school I was awarded a scholarship for a 3 week Outward Bound course, which inspired to me thru hike to Appalachian trail in 2015. I would not be where I am today without that course, and our goal is to raise money to support other people in that same way.
