In early 2020, Colin Clark was diagnosed in LA with a terminal brain tumor; it was stage 4 Glioblastoma. After radiation and chemotherapy, Clark returned to his home on the island of Hawai’i but couldn’t walk more than 50 meters. He became laser focused on getting physically stronger and living longer.
Clark lives by this motto: “Bruises come with life. And collecting the scars proves that we showed up for it.” He is encouraging us all to do whatever our physical condition allows us to do, whether it is the “IronmanForHope,” puttering in the garden, listening to audiobooks, going for a walk holding hands with your best friend.
What makes this an uplifting story is Clark’s determination in #outPerform Glioblastoma and his cause to raise money for Hospice of Kona & North Hawaii Hospice, who joined forces with 100% funds raised staying on island.
Al Brownlee (2x Olympic Gold Medalist Triathlon): “The first time I ever met Colin in Kona it was clear he was one of the absolutely good guys.”
Clark’s aim is to spread encouragement to all those with medical conditions that make life much more challenging. His dream is to have everybody make goals and strive as much as they are able to do towards those goals.
Hospice of Kona & North Hawaii Hospice receive 100% of the proceeds from “IronmanForHope.” Please support the work of Hospice of Kona & North Hawaii Hospice, who provide quality, in-home, compassionate services for patients and families needing care and support during the final stages of life, as well as emotional and spiritual support for patients and loved ones, and bereavement support.
