Fifteen-year-old Runs Marathon for Orphans

David Glass of Fairfax Station is determined to help change the life of an orphaned baby in China.

David Glass is a 15-year-old with a big mission, to help change the life of an orphaned baby in China. Glass, an 8th grader at Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax Station, understands how important it is for someone to believe in a child without parents as he was adopted at age 12 from an orphanage in Beijing. This year he will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC, with all of the funds he raises going to help “baby David,” a 6-month-old baby boy who was abandoned with cleft lip and palate.
