Real heroes don’t let their struggle break them. Rather, they let it make them. They are always thankful for all the struggles they go through. They believe that it’s their struggles that make them stronger and better. And, one such real hero is this 11-year-old track athlete, Rhea Bullos, from the Philippines, who has touched millions of hearts through her dedication towards sports.
Rhea Bullos recently ran in an inter-school running competition wearing ‘homemade’ shoes made entirely out of bandages.
Bullos also added her own ‘Nike’ logo on the sides of the bandages that covered her ankles and soles. This young athlete, irrespective of her circumstances, won the competition along with three gold medals in the 400 meters, 800 meters, and 1,500-meter competitions.
When her coach Predirick shared these inspiring images, within no time, they went viral. Many also took to social media to request Nike to help her out. Have a look:
And, shortly after, CEO of a basketball store Titan 22, Jeff Cariaso, asked Twitter to help him contact her.
Without wasting any moment, netizens connected Cariaso with Bullos and they were able to speak to each other.
And, finally, Rhea Bullos got what she deserved.
We are in awe of Bullos courage and determination. We hope many would seek inspiration from this 11-year-old and believe that we can beat our circumstances & reach new heights.
