Full Range Co-Owner, Bryan Crnkovic, and friend, Joe McGinty decided late to take part in the 2017 Philadelphia Love Run! Competing in local races is n
ot uncommon for the two longtime runners and triathletes! The two ran the race for training, both pushing each other along, much like they do every weekend, but this time something special happened. About 100 yards from the finish line, a young female runner was having difficulty. In Bryan’s kind hearted manner, he didn’t hesitate to give her a hand along with another unknown runner. After helping her continue on her feet, the runner’s legs began to give way. At this point, Joe McGinty saw the struggles and scooped her off of her feet carrying her to within feet of the finish line, only to have her cross under her own power before heading to the medical tent.
It is interesting timing. Just a few days before, we posted our weekly message stating “…we rise by lifting others…”. Bryan and Joe literally did just that! It is not every day that you see good, caring stories in the news. But these two have captured the nation. With over 40 million views around the world, they’ve struck a cord with most people, bringing about a sense of pride for doing, as Bryan and Joe put it, “what anyone else would’ve done.”
