Boy With Cerebral Palsy Finishes Race To Classmates Cheers

Matt has Spastic Cerebral Palsy and during a Field Day at his Colonial Hills Elementary School in Ohio he almost had to stop running because he was so exhausted — but his fifth grade classmates rallied around him. Watch this incredibly touching video.

Matt Woodrum is the perfect definition of determination. This little boy was struggling while running his school’s 400-meter race on May 16 and his mother captured it all on video. Just when Matt appears to have given up, the power of encouragement helps carry him to the finish line. This video will not only put life into perspective, but show you the significance of pure human kindess.

Yes, I am crying as well. Cried through most of the video. It is so nice to see children that care about another childs struggles instead of focusing on themselves. What a wonderful gym teacher you can tell he really cares about kids. Matt’s mom should be so proud of him. He showed strength and determination.
