There are many wonderful stories every year with the New Bedford Half Marathon and one of them is the Schwartz Center for Children.

Doctors from across the area will join representatives from the Schwartz Center for Children and Bay Coast Bank in this year's half marathon. It's called "Pushing Beyond Limits" and the goal is to raise awareness of the services offered at the Center. Runners are organized into teams. Each team will push a child who attends the Schwartz Center along the course through the city of New Bedford.

A long-time supporter of the "Pushing Beyond Limits" effort is Dr. Robert Caldas, who said, "I love helping out at the marathon. I don't often get a chance to donate my time so this is the perfect opportunity for me. I love seeing the kids and the look on their faces and the support they receive from so many dedicated people."

If you're on the race course this Sunday, cheer on the children and those that volunteer to "Push Beyond Limits."

WBSM will provide live coverage of the 36th annual New Bedford Half Marathon starting at 10:45am Sunday on AM1420 and
