Hi, for those of you who don’t know me, my name is Nick Pelletier. I am a college student, competitive triathlete, and adventurer living in Kelowna BC, Canada.
My whole life I have been an athlete, whether it was baseball, football, or skiing, growing up I was always competing in sports. Recently I have made the transition to triathlon, in which I have qualified for the 2019 Age Group World Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland. As I have gotten older my focus has shifted from external competition to internal competition and seeing how far I can push myself personally. I am blessed to have been gifted a healthy body & athletic abilities and I plan to use them to create good in whatever ways I can.
Ever since I was young I have had a passion for helping people. My life long goal was to be a rescue swimmer in the United States Coast Guard. Unfortunately, because I am a celiac, I am medically disqualified from contention of this prestigious career. Though I can not pursue the USCG, my goal of making a positive impact on people’s lives still burns within me.
I have arrived at the goal of road biking 3700 miles across the United States, from the Pacific Ocean, to the Atlantic Ocean, in hopes to help build a school for Pencils of Promise. For more information on my mission click HERE.
