Two Bangor competitors are preparing for their toughest triathlon task to date in a couple of ways. NEWS CENTER

ORRINGTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Sports can be a great vehicle for raising awareness for a variety of causes. We see it every where from local sports to professional sports, teams and athletes coming together for a single cause.

That's the idea for Sean Kull and Philip Henry, both from Bangor, as they continue to train for what they say is 'statistically the hardest iron man triathlon.'

Their goal is to not only finish the race, but raise money in the process for Eastern Maine Medical Center's Children's Cancer and Blood Disorder Program.

The money raised will benefit the Raish Pevey Haskell Children's Cancer and Treatment Center at EMMC.

Sean and Philip will head to the west coast for this Iron Man Triathlon being held in Lake Tahoe, California on September 21.

They have set a fundraising goal at $5,000.
