King George High School senior Wesley Berry is an inspiration to everyone around him. His love for baseball, golf, hunting, basketball, and practically anything that involves competition is well known throughout the King George community.
On Saturday, Sept. 15, at the King George Family YMCA, nearly a hundred kids of all shapes and sizes gathered to honor Berry, in the second annual Tri 4 Wesley Triathlon.
Funds raised from the event were donated to the American Cancer Society. While Berry’s battle against cancer is ongoing, his courage in the face of adversity is a story of heroism.
The Berry celebration resonated into the KGHS golf program, where he was honored during a special senior celebration on Tuesday afternoon, at Cameron Hills Golf Course.

Long before Fitzsimmons developed a passion for endurance racing, he played football, and basketball with the same interest as every other athlete did. However, long after he entered corporate America as a branch head for a major government agency, the 32-year old endurance athlete could never get rid of the itch to run faster, and longer than anyone else.
