Matt W: Never give up. Never, never, never. (Video)

More than anything else, Matt wanted to run in his school’s Field Day race last week. Unfortunately, Matt has spastic cerebral palsy, a difficult disorder that makes moving, especially running, very hard for him. But Matt decided to run anyway, and what happened next is unbearably beautiful.

    There I was, having a really shitty day and week and last couple of years…. and it ALL melted away. I hope theChive hooks this kid up with a shit ton of goodies. That kid is more of a man than most grown ass men.
    the ONe fuck given today–I give a fuck about Matt. Matt is the epitomy of Chiving ON
    PS next year Matt should be wearing a Bill Fucking Murray shirt.

      Cant belive you consider yourself a Chiver… all i can do is shake my head at you and hope that you maybe hit yours when you woke up this morning

    • luke

      your poor choice of sarcasm shows that you are a completely selfish, attention starved, less than human, piece of shit fuck, doomed to die alone in a ditch after being violated with a flaming machete.

      you don't belong here

      on earth.

      • 'Merica

        You mad bro?

    • ron

      You need to be on:

      instead of here.

    Matt .. young man you rock .. .and as a teacher there is pride in the other students for showing what caring and being a school community is all about … and how bitter are you PublicJones anyway?

  • Chris

    Proof that there is hope for a little humanity in kids today.

  • TJ Dumser

    Awesome. Just Awesome. Way to go dude!

  • CosmoKramerTheAssMan

    Good for that young man, and the selfless kids that ran with him. Motivates me to be a better father.

  • Eddie

    I'd be lying if I said I didn't have tears right now. Wow.

  • Scotty C

    great the flood banks just overflowed at work

  • MgoBlue

    That was amazing. Kudos to the parent/coach that joined Matt and all of the amazing kids.

  • Gemini Jacksom

    As a father of 2 kids with 'issues' also, I'm pretty damn moved by this. One can only hope the support and friendship he receives today will be there when he's an adult.

    • 'Merica

      You shouldn't have had the second…Jus Sayin

    • Niko

      As a 20 year old guy with 'issues', I'd say the older you get, the more people start not to care, sure there are those who laugh at you or point behind your back, but those moments are getting rarer and rarer as years go by. Just my 2 cents
