Again, we are amazed how things can happen. As ski club was in full swing at RJ's school and the disappointment set in for RJ that he could not be part of all the fun and shared memories with his friends, another door opens up. In comes Youth Challenge and the amazing opportunity for RJ to feel the excitement of skiing and be able to talk about that experience. One warm day, yes hard to believe we had a warm day during this arctic winter, we headed out to Brandywine with Youth Challenge to experience the Three Trackers of Ohio Program. It did not disappoint. RJ was so happy to be given the opportunity to ski and be like his friends. His legs are not strong enough to ski by himself and all the muscle strength it takes to ski would damage his deteriorating muscles. We weren't sure what to expect and assumed he would be sitting in a sled like structure, but we were surprised. Just when it couldn't get any better for RJ, in comes a 6th grade boy named Camden (Youth Challenge volunteer) who came over to RJ and told him he would snowboard alongside him and that they were going to have a blast. Thank you Camden!
