Ben Comen, a 16-year-old junior at T.L. Hanna High School in Anderson, has cerebral palsy. But, that doesn’t stop him from running on the cross country team. He usually finishes last, but he finishes. His teammates and even members of other teams, go back out after they finish the race and run in behind Ben. HERE> For Ben, falling is a normal part of his races. In this race he fell 6 times, but that does not discourage him. He fell coming down the home stretch with his friends around him. They helped him to his feet, held on to him as he regained his stability and then followed him to the finish line. PHOTO BY TIM DOMINICK 10/29/2003
