'Bachelorette' Star Ryan Sutter Runs Boston Marathon for Cancer Stricken Friend (VIDEO)

As much as I'd love to think otherwise, it appears that Ryan Sutter, husband of Trista from The Bachelorette, truly is Prince Charming by every stretch of the imagination. (I was so hoping he had just one tiny flaw!) Not only is Ryan super gorgeous, romantic, and an amazing husband and father -- he's also one hell of a friend. He's running in the Boston Marathon today to help out his good pal, Survivor winner Ethan Zohn, who can't compete this year because he just underwent a stem-cell transplant treatment for the Hodgkin's lymphoma he's battling.

Ryan will be running on his behalf to support the charity Ethan co-founded, Grassroots Soccer. Aww -- whatta guy!

While Ethan's amazing strength no doubt inspired Ryan to run the Boston Marathon in his place, Zohn also has just as much admiration for Sutter. He said:

Ryan is proof that you don't have to have a diagnosis to be affected by a life-threatening disease. I'm so impressed with his passion to help others. He stepped up for me before and is doing it again.

Don't you just want to reach out and give Ethan a huge hug? Throughout his struggle with cancer, he's always remained so positive and upbeat, and he's aimed to help and inspire others instead of letting his disease get him down. No wonder Ryan was so eager to help him out -- because it's impossible not to love and root for someone as amazing as him.

The Boston Marathon kicked off at around 10:00 a.m. today, and one thing's for sure -- Ryan is probably already drenched in sweat. Temperatures in the Northeast are expected to hit the mid-80s. But something tells me that there's not even the slightest chance that Ryan will complain about the heat. Record breaking temps are no match for doing something in honor of a friend.
