The firefighters and Ashley

This is a team of volunteer firefighters pushing Ashley 3.1 miles in Ashley’s first ever 5K.  Ashley is 27-year-old Ashley Bryant who’s afflicted with cerebral palsy.  His Mom, Wendy, stayed with him from the start.   That’s Wendy behind the wheelchair pushing the last quarter of a mile.    Thhis was part of the Holly Springs 5K about 30 miles north of Atlanta.  After finishing, Wendy posed with her oldest son.   She also told us how the experience blends into Ashley’s life-style.The 45-year-old Wendy usually runs a 5K in about 27 minutes.   With team-Ashley, she was about 10-minutes slower, but being  behind and alongside her son is sweeter than speed.
