In Memory of Bill Hearne

We honor and remember our friend and colleague, Bill Hearne, who was our leader, a teacher to many, an athlete and a generous mentor. Bill was the Director of the Y-Tri as well as a spinning instructor, a Dawn Patrol regular, a Run 'n' Ride instructor, yoga teacher and avid marathon runner. He also founded the “Metro Y Adventure Club.” His passion for nature inspired him to climb many mountain peaks.

Bill’s achievements were only meaningful if he could share them and his joy of living with others. Bill's strength and endurance are legendary, as were his kindness and enthusiasm. He was an amazing and optimistic person, deeply convinced that all is possible and that we are all capable of reaching our dreams. He cheered others on and encouraged us to exceed our potential every day. His life ended too suddenly during his final climb on Denali (20,320 ft.). We may not be able to make sense of his death, but we have his life to remind us of the importance of the boundless beauty of nature, of our friends, and of our Y community. We are proud to carry on the Y-Tri tradition each year in memory of Bill Hearne.


Thank you for your participation in the 2014 Y-Tri. See you next year!
