Julie and Lowell are an enthusiastic and dynamic couple who persevere through obstacles every day. Lowell suffers from Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and is legally blind. He has no peripheral vision, reduced central vision, and no vision in low light. Lowell has adjusted to decreasing sight his entire life, and has found passion in sports. He is currently training for Para-Triathlon and Para-Cycling (road and track) events with a dream to compete in the Paralympic Games. His Paralympic dream is just one way his inspiring optimism, humour, and determination have turned tough times into positive experiences.

Julie and Lowell work tremendously well as a team. Julie has been by Lowell's side every step of the way as he faces challenges to his independence. And Lowell's emotional/mental strength and unending patience has been their stronghold as they raise two young boys together.

This loving pair wants to run "The Amazing Race Canada" before Lowell's sight decreases further, and hopes to inspire their sons as well as those with physical limitations. "I want to honour my grandfather who suffered from the same eye condition. He was blind by age 40, but continued farming till his 80s… decades after he completely lost his sight," says Lowell. Julie and Lowell would use their winnings to acquire proper equipment and training for Lowell's Paralympic Games dream, fund eye treatments to help slow the progression of his condition, and travel with their kids before Lowell goes fully blind.
