Do you have what it takes to be a hero? Jim Ryun, Republican Congressman from Kansas, and his sons, Drew and Ned, highlight some of the people who lived by their principles and changed the course of history.
Congressman Jim Ryun represents the second district of Kansas in Washington D.C. A three-time Olympic runner and a former world record holder in the mile, 1500 meters, and 880 yards, he has long been considered an American hero. He also set the male high school mile record of 3:55:3, which stood for 36 years. Jim and Anne, his wife of 32 years, live on a farm in rural Jefferson County, Kansas. They have four children and two grandchildren.
Ned Ryun is the founder and CEO of American Majority, a non-partisan political training institute whose mission is to identify and mold the next wave of liberty-minded candidates, grassroots activists and community leaders. Under Ryun’s leadership, American Majority has trained over 27,000 candidates and activists since January 2009, conducting over 800 in-person trainings in an unprecedented national effort to recruit new community leaders.
Ned Ryun resides in Purcellville, Virginia, with his wife and four children.
