7-year old Bronson Roth was probably one of the youngest—and most inspiring—competitors in last weekend’s 15K GATE River Run in Jacksonville, FL. Bronson was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy when he suffered a traumatic brain injury at birth, and is unable to get around by himself. But, with the help of 3 generations of family members pushing his special lime green racing wheelchair, Bronson was able to compete in the March 14, 2015 run.
The Roths were inspired by well-known runner Dick Hoyt, who competes with his disabled son, Rick, by pushing him along in a professional racing wheelchair. The Roths wondered if this was something their son would enjoy—and sure enough, it was: “We can tell a lot by just looking at his face,” Bronson’s mother Tricia said. “That’s how he communicates. And when he’s running, just lights up. He loves it.” Thanks to family and friends, the Roths raised money for Bronson’s racing chair in just a matter of days, and they hope to compete in at least 50 races to support and encourage their son, as well as bring awareness to the many people affected by Cerebral Palsy.
