Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who calls Audubon, N.J. his hometown, has taken on a New Jersey cause as his offseason begins.
Matt Rich, a 32-year-old man with cerebral palsy from Glassboro, N.J., races in 5Ks after walking unassisted for the first time just four years ago, according to a story from the Courier-Post written in October. He finished a 5K last September with a personal best of 1 hour, 14 minutes and 37 seconds.
Rich recently started making a push to get on to “The Ellen Degeneres Show” to “be able to inspire so many other people” with conditions like his. Flacco apparently saw Rich’s campaign and started spreading the word on Twitter and Facebook.
