Triathletes against Cancer : Julian's Tree

Triathletes against Cancer (Triathlètes Contre le Cancer, TCC) is an association that was created to raise funds for cancer research and for those affected by cancer. By taking part in triathlons and races all over the world, we look to spread awareness through Sport.

Julian's Tree /// Ecuador/// 2016

The project Julian’s Tree will take place between the 27th and the 14 August. A Team of 4 members of our association will fly to Quito, Ecuador, and set off on a 300 km cycle through the Ecuadorian Andes. We will be joined by 15 local members who will ride with us along the way.

Every year we take part in the Paris Triathlon, our benchmark race, and raise funds that are donated to different cancer related organizations, including the Gustave Roussy Cancer Institute in the Paris region.

El Àrbol del Julian /// Julian's Tree

Julian passed away 5 years ago at the age of 23. He was a sports fanatic and full of energy. Most of all, he was an amazing and loyal friend. One of his dreams was to cycle around the world. 

We are setting off on a 450 km long trip through the Ecuadorian Andes, from Quito to Buena Fe where we will gather below the guayacan tree that was planted in his memory and where his ashes were placed. 

The cycle will start in the 2nd highest capital city in the world, Quito, that lies at 2850 m above sea level. From there we will follow the Andes, passed Cotopaxi volcano and Quilotoa lake at 4000 m. In Quilotoa we will start our descent towards Buena Fe, where lies Julian’s tree. We will then gather in the fishing village of Playas on the coast where Julian’s grandmother will host us. We will be riding for 7 days, stopping off in hostals and posadas along the way. All the logistics are being organized by Julian’s family.
