Kim Baltz was wondering what happened when she didn’t see her 11-year-old son at the finish line of a children’s triathlon in Florida last weekend.
“It was only a mile, I knew he was tired, I was like, ‘Where is he, where is he, where is he,’” Baltz told CNN
. “All of a sudden the announcer just said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I want you to turn around and look at what’s happening on the course.’”
What everyone turned to see was her son Ben, a bone cancer survivor, in the middle of a group of Marines who had picked him up after his prosthetic leg broke during the Sea Turtle Tri in Pensacola, Fla.
