Going the extra mile for cancer research

For the athletically challenged, participating in a triathlon sounds like a herculean feat. Add the phrase “Olympic Distance” and we’re talking a race involving a one-mile swim, a 25-mile bike ride, and a six-mile run … all in a single sprint. Who could ever be up for all that? Try two Fairfield University staff members and alumni – Steve Dailey, of Stratford, and Brian Remigio, of Orange, who spend the bulk of their days sitting behind computers working for the Computing and Network Services department. As part of the American Cancer Society DetermiNation team, Dailey and Remigio are physically gearing up to join 3,000 athletes at the 11th Annual Nautica NewYork City Triathlon in the early morning of Aug. 7. Together they will swim the Hudson River, bike up the West Side Highway, and run through Central Park.
