When the Chicago Marathon starts this October 11, INARF member ADEC will have a team presence. Case Coordinator Chacriyar Chhuon will team up with his client Kyle Hankins to participate in the “duo” division of the marathon.
This is the first time the division has been offered and Hankins and Chhuon were one of just six pairs from around the world granted entry. Hankins suggested the marathon in February, when ESPN replayed a feature on Dick and Rick Hoyt (video below).
“The moment Kyle said to me he wanted to do something like this, it was an easy yes,” Chhuon said. “I didn’t care how far, how much time (to train), how much weight, it really didn’t matter. The most important thing for me is to be able to give Kyle a special moment in his life.”
