(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Texas father has touched hearts around the world, pushing his 6-year-old daughter over the finish line to win the Gusher Marathon.
What's amazing is that he had to fight to even compete in the race.
32-year-old Iram Leon was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer two years ago.
Since then, he's decided to take his daughter with him in every race, so he can spend the most time with her possible.
Since the pair's first place finish on Saturday, marathon organizers have started a fundraising website to collect money for the girl's college education.
