brightpeak financial Member and Employee Pushes the Limits for Children's Hospitals by Rowing Across the Pacific Ocean

MINNEAPOLIS, MN—(Marketwired – June 04, 2016) – brightpeak financial, lead sponsor of Endurance Limits USA is proud to send off their member and employee Ryan Foss and his rowing partner Erin Hammer as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime! Today, June 4th, the duo will begin the arduous adventure of rowing across the Pacific Ocean in a row boat, a feat that could take longer than 44 days to accomplish. When the race has culminated in Hawaii, the Team will have hoped to raise more than $250,000 towards alleviating medical bills for families at various Children's Hospitals across the country–a goal that is beyond feasible for the ambitious duo as they've already raised $154,000+ prior to the start of the race.

This is the second trial of The Great Pacific Race, but not the first extreme adventure for Endurance Limits Team USA. Because of Ryan and Erin's previous Jungle Marathons and Mountain Hiking journeys, they are no stranger to grit, determination and execution. We applaud their commitment to dreaming big and accomplishing their goals as well as their sincere spirit of generosity, a quality that brightpeak is continually driven by. Ryan and Erin–we wish you a safe and successful trip across the ocean!
