Martin Martinez and three friends were driving in the car on their way to their high school graduation ceremony when the unthinkable happened. They turned on to a one way street after exiting the highway and a car hit them from the side causing their car to spin out. The ambulance arrived, parents were called, and everyone in the car, including Martin, were told they needed to go to the hospital for evaluation. "I had a couple cuts on my hands. I had a slight cut on my forehead; my ear was sliced and the back of my head," described Martin. "Either I went to the hospital or I went to my graduation, and I wasn't going to let an accident stop me from going to my graduation."
Martin knew the graduation ceremony had already started and he also knew that members of his family had flown in to see him walk across that stage. He made a decision to skip going to the hospital and run, a mile and a half, to the school. Not an easy feat when you consider he was still bleeding from his wreck. When he got there, Martin didn't forget his friends. He had the principal read off his friends names right after his so he could get all of their diplomas for them.
