What started as an hour long Uber ride home became the start of a lifelong friendship – and the chance for a father to see his son compete in the Rio Olympics.
However due to a lack of funds, the father simply couldn’t afford to watch him perform.
Within two days, 150 backers had pushed them over their goal.
Ellis was walking out of his church when a television station called him to announce he was going to Rio.
“I haven’t seen my son in a couple months because he’s been training,” Hill told People. “I cant wait to see him and encourage him in person and let him know I’m 100 percent in his corner.”
Liz and Ellis have been in constant touch since the campaign’s success, and the two anticipate a lasting friendship for years to come.
