Joseph Truong and Akash Sidhu[1] are a team of Friends & Volunteers on The Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition.

After finishing two legs in the penultimate position, their luck appeared to change during the third leg when they snagged the lead during the first half of the race. But a combination of shifting placements and tasks they just couldn't finish right away diminished their lead, resulting in their elimination.

Joseph and Akash met more than 10 years ago in high school, volunteering at a food bank. They both share a strong desire to help make the world a better place, and that drive has motivated them to constantly find new ways to create impact. Their strong friendship has led them to graduate from the same university, be global citizens, and start two non-profits together. Joseph and Akash have travelled to over 20 countries and have worked in disaster situations in United Nations refugee camps. Inspired by what they saw in these settings, they started a non-profit together called Empower. Empower makes internet content, specifically education and employment resources accessible and affordable in remote areas across Africa. Their second non-profit, Stuff-a-Bus, works with engaging the community, youth, and grocery stores to fill an entire school bus with the most needed food items for their local food bank. Both Joseph and Akash have dedicated their lives to helping others. They want to inspire young people to follow their own path and create their own legacy.
