Boy with disability runs most inspiring field-day race ever


You can’t keep a good man down — especially not Matt W., who just single-handedly made us vow to never say we’re too tired for the gym again. The determined student, who has spastic cerebral palsy, was given the option to sit out field day at Worthington, Ohio’s Colonial Hills Elementary School, but he chose to run in an event instead, despite the challenges of his severe disability. Matt starts to slow down about halfway through his own personal mini-marathon, but he pushes on as his supportive classmates and gym teacher cheer “Let’s go, Matt, let’s go!” and run right behind him until the end of his two laps. Have you seen anything more inspiring this week? Nope, didn’t think so.
