The week Michael Dudley was scheduled to compete in his first triathlon, he found out he had colorectal cancer. He chose to compete anyway, crossing the finish line in determination. He has since transferred his discipline and focus from his triathlon training into his cancer recovery and is now colon cancer-free. To this day, his faith, family and motivation to pursue a healthy lifestyle inspires him to keep moving every day and advocate for African-American men and early detection of cancer.
