Marine veteran Richard Hunter, the first person to receive an official guide dog trained for running, has completed the 2016 Buffalo Marathon.
On Sunday May 29, Hunter ran the marathon with a time of 3:36:52. Hunter, who suffers from a degenerative eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa, is legally blind.
Klinger has given Hunter's family peace of mind that he no longer has to run alone. And at the completion of the marathon, both Klinger and Hunter's daughter, Lindsey, were there to congratulate him.
"I wanted a model for my three daughters that you can still set ambitious goals in the face of adversity," Hunter told TWC Buffalo.
Certainly, Hunter has achieved his ambitious goal, participating in the first ever blind/visually impaired division of the marathon.
And as for Klinger, "he helps [my dad] do what he loves to do," Lindsey Hunter said.
