While my journey may have come to an end, I’ve passed the baton so to speak to Chris Girrbach, the co-owner of Great Lakes Potato Chips. Please check out his venture Tri4Kids and follow Chris’ efforts as he aims to complete one triathlon in every state no later than 2040!


Though my journey has ended, please visit Tri4Kids as Chris Girrbach, co-owner of the Great Lakes Potato Chip Company, as he begins his journey of completing one triathlon in every state while raising funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

I urge you to continue to support Big Brothers Big Sisters and defend the potential inherent in every child.
