Tim Sr.’s wife Sheryl, and mother to Tim Jr., had the idea that this father and son duo would make a great team for THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. As the eldest of four children, Tim Jr. and his father spend a lot of time together and he shares his father’s positive outlook. “I relish the chance to work with my dad,” says Tim Jr. “We get along great but we have never truly pushed each other. I can’t wait to do that.”
Three years ago Tim Sr. was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, which he has attacked with incredible optimism. Tim Sr. refuses to yield to the condition, and states “It doesn’t mean you can’t still compete...or have to go quietly into the night.” Currently Tim Sr. has completed a triathlon, and multiple half marathons, with his sights on many more this summer, while Tim Jr. just completed his first half marathon.
This energetic and highly confident pair has never travelled east of Manitoba, and hope to see Quebec City as one of the destinations on The Race.
Motto: “Just because you’ve been given a diagnosis does not mean the end of your life.”
How will they plan to win The Race: “Have an amazingly fun time and see how far we can get. Build each other up at all times!”
Number one roadblock as team: “Both of us have pretty strong personalities so it will be a challenge to make sure we’re always positive with each other.”
