Kenny Frith caught a fast ride to the finish line of the American
Discovery Trail Marathon with the help of about 50 AFA cadets.
(We'll keep you posted on his official time) Here the story of
Kenny and his father, Gary: A year ago, Gary and Kenny Frith were
the talk of the American Discovery Trail Marathon. Gary, a retired
Air Force Academy graduate (1978), pushed Kenny, his son who
suffers from Cerebral Palsy, in a large wheeled jogger for the
entire 26 miles to raise funds for the Cerebral Palsy Association
of Colorado Springs. But Gary has bigger plans this year. He has
enlisted the help of about 50 of his old AFA squadron mates. The
plan is to push Kenny to a new ADT Marathon record on Sept. 6.
