2018 Day 16: Nothing is guaranteed, and heroes can stop, too. 

Race Boss caught up with Josh Collins when he stopped in Bella Bella for repairs. Team Torrent was a man trying to complete the Race to Alaska on a stand-up paddleboard to raise awareness for veterans’ struggles with traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress. Unfortunately, as of yesterday, Josh had to drop out of the race, but it is not from lack of trying. It’s a modern day epic tale, one paddle stroke at a time.
