Chapin South Carolina High School teacher Lori Latham encountered a blind runner who was being assisted by another runner while she was running an obstacle course race. In seeing this, she thought of one of her students, Miller Ballard. Miller is blind and has been diagnosed with Aspergers. Lori thought, if they can do it, I can help Miller run. So together they set out to complete Miller's first 5k race.
