Rev. Craig Broek, pastor of Ridgewood (N.J.) Christian Reformed Church, and Bruce Bohuny, also from Ridgewood, recently competed in a sprint triathlon that raised $3,300 for wells in Uganda through Touch the World Ministries.
The sprint triathlon, which consists of a one-half mile swim, a 17-mile bike ride, and a 5-mile run, is a mini version of the Olympic triathlon.
“I love testing the limits of these incredible machines God gave us,” said Bohuny. “Working for a great cause helps me. I feel obligated to perform better knowing that people are sponsoring me.”
