Father’s commitment to son with cerebral palsy allows son to compete in Miami Marathon

Michael Sayih is a quadriplegic man born with cerebral palsy. Despite his limited motor skills, he has refused to let his disability prevent him from doing the impossible, thanks in part to the constant encouragement and support from his father.

With the assistance of his father, Jim Sayih, a former City of Miami Police officer, current CrossFit owner and fitness fanatic, Michael has competed in numerous marathons, mud runs and even Iron Man competitions.

“Michael says, ‘Yes,’ to every opportunity to getting out, interacting in his community, volunteering and serving others,” explained his father. “This kid is an inspiration to others because of how he thinks and the actions that he takes. A lot of us adults can learn from Michael and serving others.”
