Healthline Wunderkind Go the Distance






Healthline employees and executives don't just talk the talk - they walk the walk and swim, bike and run. On Sunday, June 8, 2008 Louisa Pickering (Manager, Communications), Lawrence Chang (Manager, Application Development), and Bill McGee, (Senior Vice President, Marketing Services) successfully completed the Escape from Alactraz Triathalon.

Lawrence, Louisa and Bill joined 2000 outstanding athletes to swim 1.5 miles through frigid waters from Alcatraz Island to San Francisco, a grueling 18-mile bike race, and a demanding 8-mile run through the rugged trails of Golden Gate Recreation Area. No one ever escaped from Alcatraz in its 29 year history as a maximum security prison, but every year 15,000 spectators enjoy watching the world's best triathletes complete this arduous course.

Healthline is proud to count Lawrence, Louisa and Bill among this crowd of elite athletes, setting an example for all of us.
