Westport is deservedly proud of Tyler Hicks.
The 1988 Staples High School graduate has won a Pulitzer Prize, survived a kidnapping, shared Anthony Shahid’s final moments, lived around the corner from (and captured stark images of) the Nairobi shopping mall terror attack … you name it, Tyler has seen it. Or done it.
Now he’s run a marathon.
But this was no easy-peasy road race like New York or Boston. Tyler just completed his 1st-ever 26-miler: the Maasai Marathon in Kenya.
The bush of Kenya.
But wait! There’s more!
Tyler ran the raise as a fundraiser for the Amazing Maasai Girls Project.
There are simply no words.
