Courtney Berglind and Adam Kovacs[1] are a team of Engaged First Responders and the Official Winners of The Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition.


Retrieved from[2]

After an awkward first encounter where Courtney was pouring drinks behind the bar and Adam was being auctioned off for charity, these two went on an amazing snowboarding first date and instantly fell in love. They are both goofy and light-hearted, but also determined and competitive. They push each other's buttons in all the best ways. Adam had a life-altering back surgery in 2015 that has given him a second chance at an active, healthy life. He lived for years with debilitating pain, was unable to work or do any of the things he loved. It was a long road, but he is now fully recovered. Adam's surgery was also a defining moment for Courtney. She was able to learn a lot about the strength of her future husband while seeing him go through the process of rehab. She is a natural caregiver and was able to be there for him throughout his recovery. Their experiences, as well as their professions, have taught them just how fragile life is. Helping others is their passion and they feel blessed to have the jobs they do. Laughter powers this relationship. Sparks fly constantly, either from love or friction as their First Responders professions force them to lean on each other in uncommon ways. And it is that bond they think will help them make it to the final leg of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA.
