Keith Russell is training for the Dublin City Marathon, but it's for his six-year-old daughter Alanna that he's running so hard.

Diagnosed with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy shortly after birth, little Alana's unable to move or talk. As their daughter grows, the Russells need to rebuild their house to make it accessible. The hefty $75,000 price tag has the entire community coming together to support the family. To help raise extra funds, Keith will run the entire race pushing Alanna in a stroller and practices daily with the little girl.

Help Alanna, Keith and the Russell family meet their inspiring goal.
