Their struggle to complete the grueling 26.2 miles was a symbol of the perseverance that Ironstone Farm sees daily in its clients and their families.
“I saw many amazing disabled athletes out on the course and suspect that someone at some point helped them believe they could do things they did not think possible. That’s what you do. So proud to be a part of it,” said Ironstone runner Eric Strand after the marathon.
