When 8-year-old Faith Russell crosses the finish line of a race, it's a really special moment.
"Everybody is saying 'Go Faith' and it just makes me really happy to see all those people cheering me on," says the energetic blonde dressed in neon pink.
Faith was born with spina bifida. Doctors told her parents she may never walk. Boy, is she proving them wrong now.
"We jog on the treadmill, we ride our bikes, jump on the trampoline," says Faith's older brother, Griffin – who also happens to be her trainer.
Now Faith and her team of supporters are running a race every month. Watch the video above to see the bright pink "Team Faith" T-shirts pounding the pavement together.
For her ninth birthday, Faith is organizing a race to benefit her new brother, Owen, who is living in Haiti. Her family is adopting Owen and Faith wanted to help with the costly process.
"She always has big goals, big dreams," says Faith's mom, Robin. "And somehow they always happen."
