** The Boston Marathon is a much anticipated right of spring and OGTV honors the running of this year's race with a story about a competitor who doesn't let the fact that he can't see the course prevent him from running it! **
At age 14, Josh Crary was diagnosed with the degenerative retinal condition known as choroideremia causing him to go permanently blind.
Never allowing his condition to hold him back from achieving his dreams, Josh decided to run the 2012 Boston Marathon. Both of his parents passed within the 3 months after the race, inspiring him to run again in 2013 in honor of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the hospital where his father was treated.
"The message I try to send is that life not only throws you lemons, but sometimes grenades," Josh noted. "Things might not go the way you want, or expect, but as long as we can all hold out together things do get better over time."
Josh hopes that by running he can connect with others in similar situations and inspire them to go after their dreams!
