9-year-old with CP raises $50K
A 9-year-old boy with cerebral palsy has proven that the sky is the limit when we put our minds to it. Young Tobias Weller, from Sheffield, England, could only walk 50 meters a day with a frame before the coronavirus lockdown came into effect. However, when he heard about WWII veteranColonel Tom Moore—who raised over $40 million for the U.K.'s National Health Service by walking 100 laps in his backyard garden—he decided that he'd like to do something similar for his local school and hospital. Following in the footsteps of Captain Tom, Tobias has now completed an incredible 26-mile marathon challenge and raised over $50k in the process.
