His family and students were inspired by his dedication
Aside from his family, there were many people who were supportive and in awe of his change. A former student, Veronica Monteiro was inspired so much so, she also wanted to run a marathon. It was because of Young that Monteiro ran and completed her first Boston Marathon.
Young's son started to run both track and cross country. His son, who is 15 years old, also has dwarfism like his father but has already broken his dad’s 5K record.
