In memory of our colleague, friend, and trusted member of the Durham Community, Greg Sousa.
Greg Sousa was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2012. Hope never left him, nor his desire to become part of the community to find inspiration and make it through his challenges. Greg was an East Coast Greenway Alliance member, a BMX rider, triathlete, and competitor, pedaling 900 miles from North Carolina to Florida on the East Coast Greenway (ECG) in 2013 on a brain cancer awareness-raising bike ride, which he documented on his website, “Badousa Brain.” He lived and worked near the American Tobacco Trail portion of the ECG in Durham, NC, and biked to work most days. He was an avid participant in our annual Bike Month events and socials, always arriving on his bike – with his infectious smile. His friendly presence on the trail and in Durham will be missed, as he truly embodied the spirit of connection and community.
Greg passed away on July 14, 2016, after his four year struggle with brain cancer. Thank you for enriching us with your presence and advocacy of the Durham cycling community, and leaving with us the reminder of your motivation to endure, and to continue to press on despite your illness, surgeries and treatment. You will be missed. Rest in peace.
In an effort to reduce traffic and improve air quality, the annual SmartCommute Challenge encouraged commuters in Durham, Orange and Wake counties to pledge to carpool, vanpool, bike, walk, ride the bus, or telework at least once during the annual campaign. The SmartCommute Challenge Finale was incorporated into the Golden Modes ceremony in 2010 as a way to recognize those employers and commuters who set the example beyond the annual campaign and continued to promote smart commuting through the year. After many years of success, the SmartCommute Challenge was retired as a campaign in 2012, but GoTriangle continues to recognize outstanding efforts from employers and commuters that continue to live and promote the ideals of that campaign.
