The Human Race Profile: Triphena Wong

April 2, 2013

Stephanie Joseph grew up with a love for figure skating, but she was an athletic powerhouse in running as well. When she originally underwent cancer treatments at the age of 8, there was a chance she would never walk again. Despite that possibility, she continued to be active. By high school, she joined the cross country team.

Triphena Wong grew up skating with Stephanie and later on in life she also developed a passion for running. In the true spirit of Stephanie, Triphena works daily to reach new goals both in sport and in her academics. She is currently studying medicine at  Des Moines University.

Last year, Triphena Wong placed third in her age division for the DuPage Human Race 5K. Do you have what it takes to reach the medal stand?

Whether you are a runner or not, support the Stephanie Joseph Memorial Fund and other local DuPage County charities on Sunday, April 27. Register for the 5K run or the 2 mile walk.
