BIX Legends Speak With Area Kids

Updated:

 

Learning from legends on the big BIX weekend as runners and BIX champions Bill Rodgers, Joan Benoit Samuelson and Meb Keflezighi shared their stories with kids.
     
The three visited with students at Trinity Lutheran School in Davenport today and are encouraging kids to follow their passion.

"I just want them to realize that everybody has the potential to do whatever it is they're passionate about and they might not know today what that passion is but they will find it as they explore life and are mentored and taught by teachers, parents, peers and the community," said Samuelson.

Bill, Joan and Meb will all be running the road race again, on Saturday, July 27, 2013.
