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 spinning instructor, a Dawn Patrol regular, yoga teacher, and an avid marathon man. He is the founder of the “Metro Y Adventure Club.” His passions for nature inspired him to climb many mountain peaks. We are proud to carry on the Y-Tri tradition each year in memory of Bill Hearne.

Thank you to our generous sponsors.
