Fun Run

Last week our little trooper participated in a fundraising Fun Run at his school. Students ran laps around a designated course, and family and friends pledged specific amounts of money per lap.  I must admit that this grandmother was nervous about Ben’s running for such a distance because he has a tendency to sometimes trip and fall. (He still goes to physical therapy and wears a brace on his foot at night.)  But Brave Ben doesn’t let anything stop him.

Fun run #1

Very excited to run in this event, he set himself a goal of 30 laps.  He was on his 31st lap when the time clock stopped the run!  Because he had secured substantial pledges from friends and family members, he raised a nice amount of money for his school.

We were not able to be there, so his mom took photos of the event.  In the group photos, Ben is the one in sunglasses and wearing red shorts…

 

And here’s a very short video (only about 5 seconds) of our little guy participating in the run…

We are very proud of our Brave Ben!

  1. Because of a software glitch (I could probably fix but don’t) I didn’t see the video. But even the still photos show the gung-ho spirit of Ben-on-the-run! Go Ben! Your story is one that makes other people glad to be alive. How great is that ?!!
