It takes, on average, 4:19:27 for a male runner to cross a marathon finish line. Hank Hudepohl, however, has left that time in the dust, running the Baystate Marathon in just 3 hours and 30 minutes. It would take the average man 49 minutes just to catch with him! But Hank is anything but average, he is extraordinary.
This year Hank is dedicating his Boston Marathon journey to his brothers, who have lived lives just as extraordinary as his because of organizations like Special Olympics. “I’ve been involved with Special Olympics and with causes that aim to improve the lives of special needs adults for many years. My brothers have been able to live their lives with dignity, with respect, and with accomplishment through the help of generous organizations like Special Olympics and through their own courage and determination. It is an inspiration to bear witness to their spirit.”
Join us in celebrating as Hank runs for a personal best in support of his amazing brothers and Special Olympics Massachusetts.
