Celebrating Heroes Triathlon puts focus on athletes with physical disabilities
The moving truck pulls around the loop next to the boat ramp of Centennial Lake, backing up to the water while trying to avoid wheelchairs and bikes. Eight men clamber out of the vehicle and quickly begin to set up metal barriers, tents and ramps underneath the sticky, June sun. They turn the grass in front of the water from an ordinary spot in a park into a large stage in less than an hour, a finish line looking down on the stage from about a hundred yards away.
