|Trek Store Columbus was honored for our advocacy work at Trek World (our annual dealer trade show). We're one of only seven winners in the world of the Trek Advocacy Leadership Award. Here's our fearless leader, Chris Bishop accepting the award from Trek's President John Burke.|
To commemorate the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation's 10th season of giving and its support of the fight against pediatric cancer, Tyler Wright, former Blue Jackets player and current development coach, will compete in the 2010 Subuaru Ironman Canada on August 29, 2010 to raise money in support of the Blue Jackets Foundation's Hats For Heroes program. Tyler has spent his entire NHL career advocating for this cause and the fight against pediatric cancer remains the Foundation’s signature focus for its fundraising, programming and grant-making efforts. A portion of the proceeds raised from this initiative will be dedicated to the development of The Blue Jackets Foundation's Pediatric Cancer Family Fund.
Trek is supporting Tyler's race by donating a Trek Equinox TTX 9.0, a lightweight performance bike engineered for speed and designed for use in triathlons and time trials. Trek is also outfitting Tyler with a pair of Verge Sport Custom Pro Classic Euro road racing kits while Giro Helmets is donating the racing helmet.
