My son, Gavin, is 6 years old and has cerebral palsy. He has a hard time walking and has taught me so much about myself and my body.
He works so hard every day to do some "normal" things we take for granted.
He's always wanted to run, but is not able to. Therefore, I run for my boy, Gavin.
That was all the inspiration I needed.
I will never let another day go by knowing what I am able to accomplish if I just try. He pushes me every day.
He's my hero and he always wears a smile.
