December 2011 Athlete of the Month
The Benjamin Family
The entire Benjamin Family participated in the Disneyland Half Marathon! We’re honoring all of them from left to right: Michelle, age 23, is a cyclist and a distance runner, and works as a dispatcher for a local security company. Henry, age 56, works for BNSF Railroad and is so dedicated he recently finished a 5K on crutches. He is also an active cyclist and participates in many local races. Veronica, age 55, is credited with getting the whole family running and walking about twenty years ago! She has also done a triathlon. Jenny, age 25, participated in her first marathon and triathlon this last year. She is an Air Traffic Controller, volunteer Fire Fighter and EMT. Joseph, age 27, also competes in triathlons, plays hockey, and trains regularly to stay in shape for his duties as a Captain in the United States Air Force. Each one of these family members is inspiring alone and they are a force to be acknowledged, together!
