One of the Most Inspiring Videos You’ll Ever See.

The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.
~John Bingham

In 2008, Roger Wright set out on a quest to lose weight, get healthy and eventually run in the Boston Marathon. But not just for himself, for his niece who was born with Cystic Fibrosis. His goal was to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis, along with raising money for research into the treatment and cure of this heartbreaking disease. This inspiring video highlights his incredible journey at age 47, from obesity to accomplished marathon runner.

Roger continues to run marathons to this day to raise money for CF research. He works tirelessly to spread the message that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to do.

In September, Roger will be running the Berlin Marathon.
