Agents of Inclusion - May 3, 2023 - 25:36

Ahead of this weekend's Lincoln Tunnel Challenge, avid runner Bobby Fredericks explains to JR why this road race is unlike any other in the country --beyond the fact that it takes runners from New Jersey, under the Hudson River via the Lincoln Tunnel, out into Manhattan, and back again. Then Bobby discusses how he got his start in running and in Special Olympics at the age of five. He adds insight on inclusion and perseverance, and he explains how his experience as the manager of a basketball team not only shaped him but impacted the lives around him.
