Durham brain cancer patient hopes to join ironman competition
DURHAM (WTVD) -- A Durham man battling brain cancer is looking to tackle another monumental task -- competing in an ironman world championship.
Forty-three-year-old father of two Greg Sousa is currently undergoing chemotherapy for a brain tumor. However, he's not letting that slow him down.
In fact, he's trying to gain access to the world's largest ironman event in Hawaii. An ironman is a triathlon where athletes swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and then run 26.2 miles.
Greg is trying to gain a spot in this event through the "Kona Inspired Contest." It grants entry to seven athletes who receive the most votes based on their inspiring stories through an online contest.
