8 year-old with Cerebral Palsy training for triathlon with dad

June 26, 2013

An 8 year-old girl with cerebral palsy is determined to finish a full triathalon with help from her dad.

The two are training for the Sacramento International Triathlon on June 30 at Discovery Park. This is father-daughter time that is beyond special.

Dane Schweitzer and his daughter Olivia are hitting the road to prove both physical and mental limitations are no obstacles.

To start the race, Dane will complete the one-mile swim while pulling Olivia along in a kayak. He will then carry her from the kayak, up the river embankment, and into the bike transition area. Olivia will pedal her way for a quarter-mile before hopping into a cart pulled by her dad.

At the end of the race, Olivia will walk across that finish line.
