A father’s love for his unborn daughter has inspired a 26.2-mile run through the streets of Boston and has raised tens of thousands of dollars to benefit others with the same diagnosis.
Oliver and Kinnon Foley of Charlestown, Massachusetts, are less than a month away from the birth of their first child, a girl they named Tenley.
When Kinnon Foley was 11 weeks pregnant, they found out that their daughter would be born with Down syndrome.
“About six weeks after the diagnosis, the idea struck me — this would be my best opportunity to run a marathon,” Oliver Foley told ABC News. “I learned the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress had one bib left. It felt like it was meant to be.”
