Oudshoorn, a native of London, Ont., will complete the equivalent of 30 sprint triathlons in 30 days in an effort to raise money for the Atlohsa Family Healing Service in their work to end Indigenous homelessness in London.

Oudshoorn will cover the sprint-distance – a 750 m swim, 20 km bike and 5 km run – indoors to combat the Canadian winter, using a pool, trainer and treadmill at his local YMCA. The month-long initiative will run from Feb.3 to Mar.3.

The Atlohsa Healing Service is a local Indigenous non-profit organization that offers healing, education and housing to the community, along with emergency shelter, transitional housing, and resting spaces for those going through homelessness.
