Learn more about the process of mutual inspiration by visiting the traveling Sketchbook Swap Exhibition.

Nearly 10 years ago, Guy was an overweight child with autism, due to physical inactivity special needs children often experience. Guy was encouraged to run by his parents and was introduced to running through a neighborhood group preparing children for the Beverly Hills Ridge Run. He continued running with his parents in their running groups and ran on the cross country team for King College Prep High School, although he was one of the slowest runners during cross country meets.
