LOWELL -- Beth Craig and the ...

LOWELL -- Beth Craig and the nine other members of "Team Babsie" spent more than a year training to complete the BayState Half Marathon while pushing Craig's mother, who has multiple sclerosis, in a specialized, three-wheeled chair known as a "jogger."

The Sun published a story about their inspirational quest late last year, when completing a half marathon was still just a dream.
But as Craig, her mother, Barbara "Babsie" Singleton, and the eight other runners who help push Singleton's jogger set out on the race course to finally fulfill that dream last Sunday, an even higher calling slowed down all but two of them down.
...
The team had run about 4 miles and were in the area of 123 Pawtucket Blvd., when they noticed an SUV begin to pull over as a passenger opened his door, got out and started screaming, according to Craig.
"We realized he was calling for help," Craig said. "He started wandering into the boulevard with his hands up, trying to get someone to stop."
One runner continued pushing Singleton along the course, but the other eight team members ran toward the man seeking help and soon discovered the man was actually a boy whose father was having a seizure while driving.
"I was pretty overwhelmed by all of my friends," Craig said. "There wasn't any hesitation."
The father had his feet on the both the brake and the gas pedal when the runners approached the car, but they managed to open the door, stop the car and shift it into park, according to Craig.

Meanwhile, Craig was calling 911, and other runners with her group began to flag down a paramedic unit that was driving along the boulevard.
The paramedics from Lowell General Hospital turned around and provided assistance, and a short time later, an ambulance and police arrived, according to Craig.
...
Members of "Team Babsie," as they called themselves, other than Craig and Singleton are Pam Olsen, Brenda Times, Deb Belanger, Kate Capistron, Ruthie Christino, Kerry Rollins, John Pugh and Michael Donigan.

Craig is a teacher at Tyngsboro High School.
Members of Team Babsie helped the son of the man having a seizure find his cellphone and start calling friends and family members in case he couldn't ride along in the ambulance, according to Craig.
"The medics and ambulance service were so good," Craig said. "They ended up stabilizing him and took the son in the back of the ambulance to the ER with him."
Members of Team Babsie then got permission from a nearby resident to temporarily park the man's truck on his property so it wouldn't have to be towed, according to Craig. Police took the keys so the victim could retrieve them.
Craig said that once the ambulance left, the team members resumed the race, running faster than usual to catch up to her mother, who had about a 20-minute head start on them since she and another team member didn't stop.
"We had to catch up to my mom," Craig said.
...
"I am so proud to call this group of people my friends," Craig said. "I was overwhelmed, but not surprised, that not one of us hesitated for a second to cross the street to help this family in need."
Police and Trinity EMS are both legally prohibited from releasing the name of the man who suffered the seizure, due to medical privacy laws, but Craig said she and her teammates would love to track him down to see how he's doing.
"I know for sure we are all still thinking of them," Craig said.
