BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2013
Ben Zimmer is a rider athlete with Team Hoyt VB who gets a real thrill out of the races! Ben loves the crowds, the cheering, the party atmosphere, and most of all the SPEED.
After Ben runs a long race, he is exhausted and hungry, and feels no differently than the runner pushing him. He always wants to take his medals out to show his friends the next day! My parents and I are so grateful that Ben has finally realized his dreams - he has always been a sports fan and now he's an athlete (with more wins under his belt than his siblings, I might add)! It is such a blessing that his dreams are no longer at the mercy of his body!
When Ben is riding with a fast runner like Dennis, he goes crazy with excitement and the competitve spirit grabs him. During a race in Massachusetts last year, Ben knew he was winning and teased his sister (slow running sister) when she finally finished with her rider athlete... a long time after Ben, who was being pushed by a phenom runner named Dave.
When Ben runs Rock N Roll, his favorite part are the lines of cheerleaders who yell "Go Ben!" He instantly reacts like the Grand Marshall of a Parade, proudly waving and yelling "I love you!" at his adoring cheering section!
Dennis's efforts in this race will help Ben and his friends make sure there are more races to come! Please give what you can to this cause in hopes that other awesome athletes like Ben will be able to experience the thrill of sportsmanship, teamwork, and winning a race!
From Ben's slow running sister! :)
