A Tulsa doctor gets the chance to do what so many people have always dreamed.. to become an Olympic torch-bearer.
Dr. Robert Block will soon be heading to Oxford to run the Olympic Torch Relay.
He'll be running next Tuesday.
Block was nominated by his peers and chosen by Coca Cola for his commitment to children's health and well-being,
He is currently the President of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
"We have a real tendency to pay too much too late in healthcare, when my preference would be to invest in children and children's health. Because we now have great science that lets us know that what happens to us in childhood, determines our health futures. So, I'm sort of running on that theme if you will. That we need to support children and children's health and do everything possible we can so that they become healthy adults."
If you want to watch Dr. Block, there's a live feed of the relay. But you'll have to get up early.
His leg is at 5:15 in the morning our time.
