Teen With Cerebral Palsy Leaves Wheel Chair To Play In Basketball Game

Mitchell Greathouse has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy since he was just a baby. But that never stopped him from achieving his dreams. This Freedom High School teen loves to engage in every sports, so he is described as Freedom’s number 1 fan, especially in basketball.

Mitchell uses a walking device called gait trainer to walk around. His teacher Meghan Welty gave him a challenge as a way to encourage him to make more steps in his device. He was told to leave his wheel chair and make 50 steps in the device. If he complete the challenge, school’s basketball coach agreed to let Mitchell launch the Tuesday night’s game.

Mitchell completed the challenge in one day and this is the precious moment, Mitchell’s first pass to the teammate in front of a cheering crowd.
