Boy Wins Race

Matt Woodrum is a fifth-grader that has a physical condition.  He recently completed a 400 meter race that has been posted on Youtube.  Woodrums peers gave him thunderous cheers as he crossed the finished line. 

Matt’s mother posted a blog on Babble.com This is a website for support systems who have children with physical challenges.  She stated that it showed triumph in the face of adversity.

As for Matt, he stated that winning the race gave him much confidence.  “It was really encouraging,” he added.

While the rest of his peers cheered him on, Matt was quite subdued in the spotlight.  The phones at school rang off the hook.  Matt’s sister shared he can do anything.
