ryan lochte supports muscular dystrophy

Ryan Lochte is such an inspiration!

While the Olympian isn't swimming, he's visiting Capitol Hill to talk about the MD-CARE Act with senators in Washington, D.C. and is also showing his support for the Muscular Dystrophy research.

Lochte is currently the spokesperson for Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, and because he lost someone close to him from this illness, he takes his spokesman duties seriously.

The swimmer said:

"I am so passionate about my charity, I am never going to feel like what I do is enough. The MD-CARE Act hits really close to home for me. I hope that I can do more for PPMD this year than I did in 2008, and bring as much attention to it as I can. These families are the real heroes, I’m just the swimmer trying to get people to sign their name on a bill."

Aww! We love a man that's hawt and sentimental.

Ryan's caring heart is definitely gonna take him far!!
