Jason Robinson

Jason Robinson is one of the youngest Boilermaker participants and the youngest wheelchair athlete.

His parents tried to get him into the 5K race, but they do not yet accept wheelchair participants. Instead, it was the 15K, so he joined Go The Distance.

Jason said, "My goal is to win the Boilermaker, finish in first place. Ten years from now maybe."

Jason had a lot of support from his classmates, who raised money to buy him a racing wheelchair.

The Go The Distance team is also great support for Jason. He said, "All the teammates and my dad's been pushing me. He says 'You gotta finish. Get to the left, get to the right…come on…you can go faster.'"
