Meet Harriette Thompson, a brave brave woman who was able to fight through her troubles and came to support others.
The goal of this 92-year-old grandmother is to be useful to people who have cancer.
The selfless woman does everything to stay in shape to run a marathon and win to raise money for a Cancer Society.
Ms. Thompson started running at the age of 76 when she learned that a friend was running to raise money for a charity.
And since then, in 16 marathons, Harriette has donated $90,000.
But before all this history, it is necessary to know that the woman herself fought against cancer twice and managed to survive.
Thompson became the oldest woman to manage to run 42 kilometers and finish first.
This time she ran with her beloved son Brenneman Thompson and excited fans supported her.
The woman was always the first in her age category.
She did not stop running even when she was very saddened by the loss of her husband.
Harriette was able to find the willpower to start her workouts again.
After each marathon, when she wins, she feels perfect, because she manages to realize her project, that of raising funds for people with cancer.
The lady’s son states that he is motivated by his mother’s enthusiasm and finds himself protected beside her.
Asked if next year she will participate in the competition, the kind brave woman answers that it depends on God’s desire.
